THE Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) will host Q&A video sessions on Instagram Live for prospective CAO students, starting on Monday, 27th April.

The sessions will feature business, engineering, science, humanities, computer science, art, music, and maritime subjects.

These sessions will be particularly beneficial for students availing of the CAO change-of-mind facility which opens on May 5th.

Each session will last 30 minutes and will be based on a particular department’s courses and disciplinary area, covering topics such as course content, work placement, and future job prospects.
