Academic Induction

We are looking forward to welcoming you to on-campus activity at the Institute in the week starting Monday 20 September 2021. We have done everything we can within the public health guidelines to make your first week at IT Sligo a memorable, fun and informative one.

We want you to meet new people, find out new things and be part of a broad and diverse community. We are all looking forward to designation as part of Ireland’s latest Technological University in the next few months. What a great time to be embarking on your life as an IT Sligo student!

The events of next week are divided into two:

  • Academic induction – is where you meet your new classmates and lecturers: your own ‘learning community’. This takes place on Monday 20 and Tuesday 21 September (except Fine Art and Performing Arts 27 Sept). It’s very important you attend to find out all you need to know before timetabled classes start on 27 September. The schedule is outlined below.
  • #ITSBack! – our general induction to student life at IT Sligo and a fun-filled celebration of being back on campus (at last!) This takes place in 2-hour sessions on 22 and 23 September in our special Marquee (just follow the signs on campus) and you will need to book your place via Eventbrite.

Academic Induction Schedule – for all first-year students

Remember – you can find out everything you need to know about Induction at the dedicated induction web page, including live Q&A sessions every day.

Do check back on the site regularly as we are still in changeable times!

For all you need to know about student life, to meet your classmates and the Students Union (and maybe get a fun photo in our photo-booth) make sure to come along to the #ITSBack! Marquee on either 22 September or 23 September. Numbers for each 2-hour session are limited due to public health requirements, so you must book in advance on Eventbrite.
