The dates and times for the open day sessions are:

Commenting on the announcement of the virtual open day Vice President for Research, Development and External Engagement Brid McElligott said; “We all have to keep our distance at this time but the staff of IT Tralee are still available to offer support and advice to those considering their third level choices.

“The COVID19 crisis has created an opportunity for third level providers to innovate when it comes to helping students to select their preferred college course. We realise that this year’s Leaving Certificate students face challenges like no other and we hope that by creating this easy to use platform we will help to take the stress out of college choices during this time.”

Acting Vice President Academic Affairs and Registrar Aileen Kennedy said; “I’d encourage applicants, their parents and guardians and those thinking about returning to college to take part in our virtual open day and see the diversity of our programmes first-hand.

“Whether you have yet to make your final decision or have already decided that IT Tralee is your college of choice, it can be extremely valuable to connect with our academic and student support staff to ask any questions you may have.   We look forward to welcoming these students in the autumn as they start their third level journey and life returns to normal.”
