“The CAO change of mind facility opened on 5 May and many prospective students and their parents will need to start thinking about confirming their CAO choices, before the 1 July deadline. WIT has a ‘right student, right programme’ ethos and students who thoroughly research their college and course options are more likely to be happier in their studies,” Dr O’Byrne added.

Panel interviews at the recent virtual open day were among the most popular events and WIT Talks will follow the engaging and informative format.
