Who we work with

The GMIT Connect team works with schools and communities to support students in their journey towards third-level education, regardless of their circumstances or background.

Preparing students for college

We support school leavers and adult learners to prepare for, apply to, and succeed at college.

Talk to us to organise activities such as:

  • School talks
  • In-school programmes
  • Career workshops

  • Bespoke activities - come to us with ideas!

Supporting students in college 

Once students join the GMIT community, we can put supports in place.

For example:

  • Student Mentoring
  • Financial Supports such as the Student Assistance Fund
  • Supports for students with physical, sensory or specific learning difficulties
