Dundalk Institute of Technology (DkIT) is organising its annual CAO Information Day on Saturday 23rd January (10am-2pm) for 2021 prospective students. This year’s event will be delivered exclusively online and will have a strong student focus, aimed at giving potential applicants an authentic understanding of what DkIT has to offer, including its 50+ degree courses, student life, teaching & leaning and career opportunities.

The primary focus of the day will include live question and answer sessions with current DkIT students from across all degree course areas, who will be online to discuss their own unique DkIT experiences. Staff from across the college will also be available to answer specific live questions relating to course choices, the CAO process, admissions, fees and grants, student supports and much more. Students will also be able to access a range of informational webinars about everything from mature student applications and further education progression to sports scholarship opportunities.
