Topics on the day included Course structure/content/options, Work Placement, Studying abroad, Post Graduate opportunities, Accommodation, Mentor System, Tutorial system, Assessment and Exams, Scholarships/Grants.

“We are indebted to our past pupils who offer invaluable advice on course content, career prospects and the highs and lows of college life,” said Ms.Mulcahy.
