WIT Arena is again the setting for two Waterford institute of Technology (WIT) open days for prospective students on Friday, 19 January and Saturday, 20 January 2018

CAO applicants, school leavers, their teachers and parents, as well as graduates and adults interested in part-time, postgraduate and full-time undergraduate study can start the new year with new ideas with a choice of two WIT open days this January.

The WIT Arena, which has become a popular venue for large-scale events over the past year, is the setting for the open days on 19 and 20 January 2017.

On Friday, 19 January, students from secondary schools and colleges of further education across the region and beyond are among thousands to see what options are available on their doorstep at the region’s largest institute of technology.

On Saturday, 20 January, the doors are open to prospective adult students as well as school leavers and their parents – with information available on part-time, postgrad, and Springboard courses as well as undergraduate courses.

Vice President for Academic Affairs and Registrar of WIT, Dr Derek O’Byrne urges anyone with an interest in pursuing third level education to come along to either open day and discover if there is something for them.

WIT has a number of new offerings for 2018 entry. Of special interest for school leavers are a selection of broad or common entry courses which give students a chance to refine their decision after they start a course. At undergraduate level, the institute has 70 CAO courses across a range of disciplines including business, engineering and architecture, sports and nursing, law, social sciences, arts and psychology, the creative and performing arts, languages, tourism and hospitality, science and computing.

On 10 January WIT is the location for two presentations designed for adults (11am-12pm and 7pm-8pm) considering applying as mature applicants (aged 23 or over) through the CAO in 2018. The presentations are being organised by the rebranded Waterford Adult Educational Guidance Service (WAEGS) which was formerly known as the Regional Educational Guidance Service for Adults (REGSA).

CAO applications can be made online for a reduced fee of €30 before the 20th January at 5:15 pm. A fee of €45 applies after this time and until the normal closing date of 1st February at 5:15 pm.

    Time for a breakJust as the height of Summer begins it seems that it is also the time when our politicians begin their yearly departure from Dail Eireann. While not many professions get as much holiday time as politicians do you have to ask the question whether they merit such long breaks?There are many who would immediately answer that they don't really deserve such long holidays, that they barely seem to spend any time in the Dail at all and after all they are well remunerated for the long hours …
