A range of exciting new degrees in Biomedical Engineering, Agricultural Engineering, and Culinary and Gastronomic Science, and other disciplines, will be unveiled at GMIT’s final Open Morning taking place at the Galway (Dublin Road) campus and the Centre for Creative Arts & Media (CCAM) this Saturday, 6 May, running from 10am to 12.30pm.

Staff and students will be on hand to answer questions about these and other new programmes such as Early Childhood Education and Care, International Hotel Management, Public Health Nutrition, International Tourism Management, and all courses in the Galway and Mayo campuses.

A shuttle bus will run between the two Galway city campuses during the morning. A special talk on CAO Change of Mind Advice will take place at 11am in the Galway campus, Theatre 995, and a SUSI talk on the grant system takes place at 12 noon also in Theatre 995.

Michael Hannon, VP Academic Affairs & Registrar, says “This is a very important Open Day for all our CAO applicants who may have a query on their CAO choice or who may wish to find out about one of our several new programmes recently launched by the Institute. In previous years we note that up to 25% of our applicants change their mind before July 1st so I encourage as many applicants as possible to visit us this Saturday during our final Open Day this year.”
