First5weeks Welcome Programme

5 weeks, 5 themes, 5 great ways to settle into GMIT!

Your student experience is important to us!

We have developed a five-week programme to help you settle into college life and to make the transition to third-level education easier, whether you have come directly from secondary school or have been out of education for some time.

We realise that moving away from home, family and friends can be daunting. The #First5weeks programme will help you adjust to this change.
