GMIT open day aims to help students make the right choices

Fri, Apr 17, 2015

GMIT will hold its last open day of the academic year this Saturday, April 18, for secondary school students, parents, career teachers, and mature students. As some 6,000 CAO applicants have still not registered their course preferences, this event aims to help students make the right choices.

Information will be available on courses in all GMIT campuses including Mayo (Castlebar), Letterfrack, Mountbellew, and the two Galway city campuses. Students and staff will be on hand to answer questions and provide brochures and information on programmes in business, computing and IT, engineering, furniture design and technology, science, nursing and social studies, tourism and creative arts/media, and outdoor education.

It will include campus tours and activities, learning experience talks, SUSI college finance clinics, career clinics, CAO guidance, a graduate showcase, and a GMIT Students’ Union exhibition.
