Higher Options

Higher Options
On Thursday 17th September, Leaving Certificate students attended Higher Options and visited the campus at University College Dublin. The Irish Times Higher Options is one of Ireland’s biggest student events with over 170 colleges, universities and institutes of further education present. Students had the opportunity to meet and speak directly with representatives from all the main Irish universities and colleges, as well as many from the UK, Europe and further afield. Equipped with a mass of information we later visited the UCD campus to gain an insight into life at university, we bumped into a couple past pupils and some students even joined the UCD hockey club for next year!
This is an important time for Leaving Certificate students, and on the foot of this outing, students need to put a lot of time into researching every aspect of their desired courses. The Guidance Office is open every day if students need to drop in with questions and all leaving certificate students should follow @StMelsCareers on twitter for closing dates, open days and other college information.
