GMIT is pleased to announce a new ‘Virtual Open Day’ online experience for prospective students and their families. The new virtual platform is live from today, Friday, 24 April, at openday.gmit.ie and features information about all campuses and courses, advice and guidance for students, personal welcome videos from academics and support staff, and a special video message from GMIT President Dr Orla Flynn.

From Friday next, 1 May, the Virtual Open Day will be complemented by live online Q & A sessions at www.gmit.ie/livechat and every Friday from 2pm to 4pm until the end of June where GMIT staff will answer queries on courses and services.

GMIT President Dr Orla Flynn says: “The Virtual Open Day is not a one-off live event, rather a micro-site that will be open 24/7, with no obligation to connect in at any specific time. We invite you to browse our campuses and courses, and get advice on careers, accommodation and our range of services. We look forward to hearing your questions at our live Q & A sessions every Friday from 1 May.”

GMIT Schools Liaison Officer Lorraine Cunningham and GMIT Marketing Officer Karen Smyth explain: “We were aware that there were many disappointed students and parents who were unable to attend our Spring Open Day due to COVID-19 restrictions and we want to reassure you all that we are still here for you, so please do connect with us on our ‘Virtual Open Day’ any time between now and the Leaving Cert.”

“While nothing will replace the experience of visiting our campuses, and being in the one physical space together, we hope that this Virtual Open Day will give prospective students and parents a ‘feel’ for GMIT. We invite you to join us at openday.gmit.ie and at www.gmit.ie/livechat and together we will try to get through this challenging time until we can welcome you onto our campuses again”.

"The key parts of the site is that it is not a one-off live event, rather a micro-site that will be open 24/7.
A real unique part of the site is our Careers Corner is that it features a series of presentations that help students to discover their personality type and match it to suitable courses and careers. We are giving students access to online profile assessments free of charge for a limited time. They can then follow up on their results with a member of our Careers Office.
The Virtual Open Day will be complemented by live online Q&A sessions at www.gmit.ie/livechat running every Friday from 2pm to 4pm until the end of June where GMIT staff will answer queries on courses and services."
