Induction will take place in college between 9th to 13th September 2024. Our induction programme is designed to help you settle into college life and learn about the academic and social aspects of your time with us.  We will send you an email inviting you attend induction on a specific date that week. The following provisional dates outline the schedule for Induction.

Induction is compulsory and it is extremely important to attend. It will help you familiarise yourself with the layout of the College and will give you an opportunity to meet your new classmates and teachers. Over the course of the day, we will cover some of the following topics:  

  • Well-Being and Student Support Services  
  • Getting to know one another – your course, teachers and classmates 
  • Garda Vetting (where appropriate) 
  • Using information and technology to participate in College 
  • Campus tour with your Programme lead
  • Receive your timetable

During your induction, you will learn about our college systems including Moodle and Microsoft Office 365. You will be sent your Microsoft username and password to the email address that you registered with.  If you registered in the days before induction and haven’t received it yet don’t worry. You will still be able to participate.  It might also be a good idea to check your ‘junk’ messages in case it is redirected there.


Classes will commence the week of 16th September 2024. Your timetable will be available prior to that date. 

If you have registered after classes commence, then you must attend a catch-up induction session held in Room 4 on dates to be confirmed.
