MTU HEAR Information Session

MTU Cork Access Service will be running an information session on HEAR (Higher Education Access Route Education) application process during College Awareness Week.                             

The Higher Education Access Route (HEAR) is a college and university scheme which offers places on reduced points and extra college support to school leavers, resident in the Republic of Ireland, who are under represented at Higher Education due to their socio-economic background. HEAR has been set up by a number of colleges and universities as evidence shows that long term poverty can have a negative effect on how well a student does at school and whether they go on to college. HEAR applicants must meet a range of financial, social and cultural indicators to be considered for a reduced points place and extra college support.

Date & Time

The event will take place in IT1 Berkely Centre, Bishopstown Campus from 6.00pm to 7.00pm

Tickets

Booking must be made using the following link
