If you’d like to start or return to third level education this September you still have time to apply for degree programmes at IT Sligo, whether you applied through the CAO earlier this year or not.
The Available/Vacant Places system provides opportunities for students on courses which remain unfilled after all offers have been made and the waiting lists of applicants meeting minimum entry requirements have been exhausted.
A number of programmes at IT Sligo in the areas of accounting, archaeology, art, business, computing, design, engineering, performing arts and science still have places available.
Student Affairs Manager Gerry Hegarty is encouraging interested students to explore their options; “The Available/Vacant places system is operated by the CAO and provides great opportunities in a wide range of courses.
“People sometimes think that if they’re not in the system at this stage in the year, they’ve missed the boat for another year but there’s still time to get aboard,” he said.
With a community of almost 6,000 students IT Sligo is a popular third level destination. The Institute’s campus is set on 70 acres in Sligo and its home to some of the best learning and sporting facilities in the country.
The Institute has experienced one of its most successful years in the past year, with its students celebrating victory in competitions as diverse as the National Surfing Competition and the world’s leading student technology competition, the Microsoft Imagine Cup.
A recent graduate of the Institute’s BA (Hons) in Interior Architecture, Seana Clarke is now working with a design firm in New York. “I loved my course. IT Sligo’s Interior Architecture course offers a larger depth of knowledge into the world of architecture than any other college in Ireland or the UK, something of which I am very proud to be part of.
“Also, Sligo is a great place to live. It’s safe, has a fantastic scenery and the night life and on campus social aspect is terrific and the lecturers are great,” she said.
