Discover University is a summer programme run by the Early Learning Initiative held in NCI every June that aims to give young people aged 14-17 the opportunity to experience a taste of college life through fun and exciting projects and workshops.

This year, the programme ONLINE from Monday 22nd June - Friday 26th June 2020, from 12-4pm each day. Students need access to the internet and a smartphone or a laptop to participate. The programme is, as always, free of charge.

Students may apply to one of our four core subject areas of Business, Computing, Early Years and Psychology. They then 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. 

The programme finishes with a Prize-giving Ceremony for students, their families and invited guests to celebrate their achievements.
