If you are interested in studying a Postgraduate or Masters programme, then LYIT has more than 30 programmes to choose from; programmes that will enhance your skills and take you to next level in your career. 

During the event LYIT’s experienced academic and student support staff will be on hand to answer prospective students’ questions and queries.  The event will include a series of scheduled talks, and students considering LYIT in their CAO course choices 2022 are encouraged to attend this event.  LYIT’s Student Ambassador Team will be on campus offering campus tours and iRadio will be on site doing a live broadcast to promote this Spring Open Day event.

It’s an exciting time of change at LYIT, as LYIT becomes Atlantic Technological University (ATU) with partners IT Sligo and GMIT on Friday 1 April. 

Billy Bennett, Vice-President for Academic Affairs and Registrar, commented, “This event is significant as it provides prospective students with the opportunity to connect face to face with LYIT’s experienced academic and student support staff.  Like so many organisations LYIT has been unable to meet with prospective students due to Covid-19 restrictions; however, this event provides incoming students with the chance to explore LYIT’s facilities and find out more about what LYIT has to offer.  If you are thinking about studying at LYIT in 2022 then be sure to attend this on-campus event.”
