Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) is the location for a presentation designed for adults considering applying as mature applicants (aged 23 or over) through the CAO in 2018.

The CAO 2016 Mature Applicant Presentation takes place on Wednesday, 10 January 2018, in the Auditorium, WIT’s Cork Road Campus.

The presentations are being organised by the rebranded Waterford Adult Educational Guidance Service (WAEGS) which was formerly known as the Regional Educational Guidance Service for Adults (REGSA).

Mature applicants can choose to come from two sessions: 11-12pm or 7pm- 8pm. Both presentations will include detailed information on applying through the CAO and completing the WIT Mature Applicant Assessment Form, with a questions and answers session at the end. No booking is required.

With the CAO deadline of 1st February fast approaching, mature applicants should not miss out on the invaluable tips and information which will be shared at this event.

Peter Lucey Co-ordinator and Guidance Counsellor at Waterford Adult Educational Guidance Service (WAEGS) said "Making the right choices at CAO time is important and we’re delighted to be able to offer free advice and helpful tips for those considering coming to WIT or any other third level college. Anyone even considering going back to college should really come along. There’s no need to pre-register – they should just turn up for either the morning or evening session.”

One student who benefited from talking to this guidance service for adults is Steve Daly, who is a BA (Hons) in Psychology student. Steve was appointed as the first mature student’s officer by WIT Student’s Union in 2017.

WIT is running two open days at the WIT Arena. The Schools’ Open Day takes place on Friday, 19 January. The #StudyatWIT Open Day on Saturday, 20 January is suited to all applicants from those interested in post grad and part-time study to mature applicants, parents and traditional CAO applicants.

Campus tours run year-round and are available to book online at http://www.wit.ie/campustours.

    When the latest statistic that waiting times for patients had risen to their highest level yet, there can't have been too many people that were surprised.There are now over 700.000 people on waiting lists with over 50.000 of them children. That so many people are waiting for treatment in one of the most developed economies in the world is truly frightening.
