1. Online Registration
Information on registering online will be issued to you by post. Once you receive this information you can click here to begin the online element of registration. Registering online includes fee payment - click here for details on fees. Students wishing to pay by instalments should:
- Complete the registration process, tick the terms and conditions and confirm registration buttons.
- In Registration Fees click the ‘Pay Later’ button.
- Log back into Online Registration and click ‘Student Account’ select the relevant Academic Term and click the ‘Pay Now’ button and enter the amount (instalment 1 is a minimum of 25% of the total fee). To avail of this option students are required to complete and submit an instalment agreement.
2. 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 explains the purpose of this survey, while you can click here for further information on HEA Data Collection.
3. Quickscan Assessment
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.
4. ID Photograph
On completion of the HEA Survey and Quickscan Assessment, students then proceed to have their photograph taken for their student ID card.
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, (accepted forms of ID) are brought with you on Registration Day. Registration for these codes will be provisional until Garda Vetting is successfully completed.
6. School/Department Induction
In September, each School/Department runs specific induction for each 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.
Note: Late Offers
Students who receive CAO offers from round 3 and later, should not wait to hear from LYIT. Instead, having first formally accepted the offer via the CAO, you should come ahead to college as soon as possible. Come to the main reception desk on arrival, ensuring you have both your CAO number and relevant fees due. Provide us with your name and CAO number, and indicate that you received a late offer. Once your offer/acceptance has been confirmed, and any due fees have been paid, you will be permitted to register and attend class.
