Information Evening re Part-time Courses at AIT

An information evening about part-time and evening courses offered by Athlone Institute of Technology (AIT) will be held on Wednesday evening 7 September from 6.15-9.00pm. The event will take place in the John Count McCormack Centre on AIT's main campus.

A large team of lecturers and expert staff work on the various information booths and are well placed to answer any question which a member of the public may have. The annual registration and information event typically attracts hundreds of prospective students eager to discover more about the range of courses on offer.

More than 100 part-time programmes across business, humanities, engineering and science are available at AIT. Academic programmes are available at higher certificate (Level 6), degree (Level 7), honours degree (Level 8) and Master's degree (Level 9). In addition, there are a wide vareity of recreational, positive living and self-improvement courses to choose from.

Head of the Department of Adult and Continuing Education, Dr Michael Tobin, said that: "Over the past few years, we have all been experiencing the consequences of the economic downturn. While it has impacted people in many different ways, it has reminded us all that we must take control of our own future if we are to ensure that we play a significant part in this world – whether we play that part in Ireland or abroad."

Dr Tobin contined: "We hope that the programmes on offer will motivate and enable people to take control of their world and their future, enabling them to achieve their various ambitions. Applying the learning that they gain on one of these programmes, our hope is that they will achieve their ambitions and go on to exploit the many opportunities that may arise well into the future."
