3.  HEA Survey  

First year students are required to complete the HEA Survey.  The HEA survey can be undertaken on Registration Day.  Note – you must be registered first prior to undertaking the HEA Survey.   The Equal Access Leaflet outlines the purpose of this survey, while you can click here  for further information on Data Protection at LYIT.  Information on the HEA Data Collection can be obtained by clicking here.

4.  Quickscan Assessment & Learning Traits Screener

The Quickscan Assessment is operated by LYIT’s Learning Support Unit - The Curve.  This test is conducted to determine your preferred learning styles, and as an aid to identify any specific learning strengths and weaknesses you may have, some, perhaps you may not have been aware of.  The test itself is a simple computerised test that takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.  The results of this test are used to identify students who may be in need of additional support via The Curve, e.g. for study skills, general language skills, maths, dyspraxia, visual stress, or with general learning confidence.  The Quickscan Assessment is also undertaken on Registration Day.

The Learning Traits Screener will help students identify their own unique learning traits. This will be of great benefit to students as they come to term with independent learning in the college setting. The screener is based on the work of William Dodson M.D. an international expert in this field. It will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. If you should have any queries about the screener please contact the Curve room 3456.

5.  Garda Vetting (where applicable)

A number of courses at LYIT require students to obtain Garda Vetting.  Students who have applied for these course will receive a Garda Vetting form with their Registration pack.  It is essential that the completed form, along with appropriate ID, ( Garda Vetting Information ) are brought with you on Registration Day.  Registration for these codes will be provisional until Garda Vetting is successfully completed.

6.  Induction

All students are advised to access the online induction via the Student Toolkit. Online induction will provide an introduction to each of the support services, blackboard, Office 365 plus other useful information. In addition to the online induction, each Faculty/Department runs specific induction for each first year class group. This gives students a chance to meet and get to know their class group and staff. The course requirements specific to your programme will also be outlined for you. You will be given vital tips and hints on settling into college and succeeding in your course. Individual departmental induction schedules will be available from here in early September.
