Discover University

Discover University is a summer programme, held in NCI every June, that aims to give young people aged 14-17 the opportunity to experience a taste of life at NCI and to see college as part of their future.

Students may apply to one of our four core subject areas of Business, Computing, Early Childhood Education and Care and Psychology. They learn about their chosen subject throughout the week, through group work and lectures. Students are mentored and supported by NCI faculty staff and team leaders, who are current NCI students. The programme also includes virtual visits to exciting and innovative workplaces and workshops, activities, and guest speakers.

This year, we are delighted to be back on campus at NCI for Discover University, June 23rd - 30th (Excluding the weekend). Our Graduation and Prize-giving Ceremony will happen on Thursday 30th June, followed by a BBQ for participants and families to celebrate their achievements.

Discover University is free of charge for young people and priority is given to young people going to school or living in inner-city Dublin and Docklands areas.
