Discover University with ELI at NCI



Discover University

Discover University is an eight-day summer programme held in NCI every June that aims to give young people the opportunity to experience a taste of life at NCI and to see College as part of their future. The programme is aimed at students aged 14-17 years old and involves learning through fun and exciting projects and workshops. They will also have the opportunity to visit exciting and innovative companies in the Docklands area, to show how higher education translates into the working world. This year, the programme will run from Wednesday 19th June - Friday 28th June 2019 (excluding the weekend).

Students may apply to one of our four core subject areas of Business, Computing, Early Childhood Education and Psychology. Students work in teams to complete a group project in their subject area throughout the week while they also attend lectures and workshops. Each group will be mentored and supported by a team leader (a third level NCI student) and NCI faculty staff. The programme is free of charge and lunch will be provided daily.

The programme finishes with a Graduation Ceremony and BBQ for the students, their families and invited guests to celebrate their achievements.
