Going to College - Make It Happen (A free advice evening)

The National College of Ireland present a free “Going to College - Make It Happen” information evening on Thursday 17th January. This free information session aims to help parents, and all those involved with students considering third level, understand all the choices involved. 

Every year, upwards of 50,000 school leavers attend 3rd level college. There are so many choices around “where to go” and “what to do”. The whole process can sometimes seem confusing. These informal talks give students and their families or advisors the opportunity to hear simple, straightforward advice from some of the Ireland’s leading experts.

Highly experienced speakers will help you understand and advise potential students on applying for the ideal course. Brian Mooney, Irish Times Education correspondent and former President of the Institute of Guidance Counsellors, will explain the CAO application process. Brian will also give the benefit of his many years experience to help you understand the various options available when it comes to applying for third level. 

Paul Mooney, President of The National College of Ireland, will speak about the various progression routes through third level and the many new programmes that are encouraging access to third level for all.

Attendees will also have an opportunity to put any third level queries they may have to the experts on the night.
