ATU Sligo hosts its first on campus Open Day as a University this Saturday 7th May


ATU Sligo will welcome prospective students and their families to an on-campus Open Day this Saturday, May 7th. The event, which will take place from 10 am to 2 pm, will be their first Open Day as Atlantic Technological University. The Open Day is an excellent opportunity to discover all that ATU Sligo offers as a third level destination. Interested students and their families are encouraged to attend, as a packed schedule of events will ensure no questions remain unanswered.

Open Day visitors will have the opportunity to talk with academics, current students and the student support teams. Visitors will also see first-hand the modern campus facilities through a mixture of interactive workshops, demonstrations and campus tours. A hop on/hop off bus will tour the purpose-built student villages which surround the campus throughout the day.

Two guest speakers will also attend the Open Day. Sean Lally, The Study Coach, is first up at 10.30am. Sean will discuss how to maximise study time ahead of the Leaving Cert. He will also offer advice to those returning to education. The second talk, which will take place at 1.30pm, will focus on mental health and wellbeing. The Wolf Academy will deliver an insightful and inspirational talk about protecting your health and wellbeing around the time of exams, and in everyday life.

iRadio will also be present on the day and will have some great prizes to giveaway. A Sligo Discount Sheet for Open Day attendees will allow a 10% discount at various coffee shops, restaurants and clothes shops in Sligo, Strandhill and Rosses Point. Meanwhile, a parking voucher will allow Free Parking at several Sligo County Council carparks on the day.

Marketing & Student Recruitment Manager at ATU Sligo, Cleo Devaney, is looking forward to welcoming prospective students to the in-person event:

We have packed our Open Day schedule to ensure attendees leave with all the information they need. We are very excited to welcome prospective students and their families to our campus.”
