National College of Ireland Open Day 2018

National College of Ireland is hosting its next open day on Saturday January 20th from 10am to 1pm at its city-centre campus, in the heart of Dublin’s IFSC. Keep reading for all the details of the day! You can also follow the hashtag #NCIOpenDay and keep an eye on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for updates.

Why should I attend the NCI Open Day?

Well we’re glad you asked. Attending an open day is one of the best ways to get a feel for a college, its courses and the general atmosphere on campus. We like to think NCI is a pretty happy place, but come and get a feel of it for yourself, before you fill out your CAO form.

Karen Campbell, NCI’s School Liaison Officer, explains: “Attending an open day is one of the best ways to get a feel for a college, its courses and the general atmosphere on campus.

One of the things that people always comment on is the great buzz around the place,” she says. “Because we’re a smaller college, you won’t feel lost in the crowd; there is a friendly, welcoming atmosphere and it’s easy to find your feet.”

What can I expect from the NCI Open Day?

With taster classes, course stands, and competitions throughout the day, the event promises to be not only educational, but also a whole lot of fun. The gang from Spin 1038 will be on campus to help create a buzzing atmosphere and there will be music, craic and games a-plenty. NCI is one of the few educational institutes to offer guaranteed accommodation to first-year students, and the open day offers the chance to tour the on-campus student apartments.

Most importantly, though, you can find out about our full-time courses in business, computing, psychology, marketing, HR, accounting and more. Chat to lecturers and staff, meet the students’ union team, learn about clubs and societies on campus - and find out why our graduates consistently top the charts in terms of employment attainment, compared with other third-level institutions in Ireland.

Talks and topics at the NCI Open Day

You will have the chance to sit in on an exciting range of 20 minute talks on areas that you might cover on your course at NCI. Interested in technology? You might like to drop into our talk on “The Smart Home – How the internet of things will impact the way we live”. Can your fridge really order you a pizza on your way home from work? If social media grabs your fancy, one of our experts will talk you through “Marketing in the Age of the Internet Troll". You may also want to educate yourself on how to spot a psychopath and check out our psychology talk "Psychopaths in the World". 

How can I find the NCI Open Day?

The college couldn’t be easier to get to: it’s just round the corner from Connolly Station, and has its own LUAS stop right on the doorstep. Come along at any time between 10am-1pm – let us know you’ll be there and what you think of the day, with the hashtag #NCIOpenDay.
