The event on will focus on the range of CAO programmes offered at GMIT, as well as apprenticeships and part-time, upskilling, Continuing Professional Development, and postgraduate courses.

The event will run from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, November 20 at openday.gmit.ie.

This will allow them to get all the latest information on crucial topics like how to apply to GMIT, employment opportunities for graduates, student supports, career options and student life.

Lorraine Cunningham, GMIT Schools’ Liaison Officer, said “While we would love to all be meeting you on site for our Winter Open Day, the next best thing, considering safety guideline, is that we invite you to join our event through an online platform.”

“We have found this very useful and it has opened many doorways for everyone, allowing greater access for new students both near and afar.”

“With each virtual event we are learning and growing, and this Five Campus Winter Open Day event is set to be even bigger than before.”

There will be two two live-streams running concurrently throughout the day, one focused on focused on general preparation for college, and the other on the many disciplines available.

Topics will be covered in panel talks, and staff, students, and past graduates will also be available for screen chats live for those interested.

Along with the school and campus booths covering their respective courses, the many different services at GMIT such as the Students Union, Access & Disability (DARE), Careers Office, Sports, and more will also be on hand.
