Wit induction

Step 1 Online Registration

You must complete your StartWIT Online Registration at home on receipt of details by email from the WIT Admissions team from the 29th August 2019.

Step 2 Orientation

We can't wait to meet you at StartWIT Orientation!  StartWIT Orientation will give you a fantastic opportunity to meet your classmates and lecturers and become familiar with the campus. Don't be afraid to ask us questions, we are here to help you make a smooth transition to college and we are looking forward to getting to know you during your time in WIT.

Different courses deliver their orientation in different ways, some over one day and others over two days. It is extremely important that you attend. To help you get organised and plan in advance, you will find the StartWIT dates for your course, the start location and start time below. (Please note that orientation timetables may be subject to change and the accurate date will always be in your StartWIT email that you receive at the end of August 2019).

What to expect

During Orientation, the team in Student LIfe and Learning, your Head of Department, course leaders, lecturers, and student volunteers, will be on hand to help you find your room and get you settled in.

Ongoing orientation is organised for first years throughout the academic year (typically in October and February). Ongoing orientation sessions aim to make students aware of the various Student Support Services that are available to them and help to get students settled in. 

Advanced Entry students

For students who are joining WIT from other colleges through our Advanced Entry route, there are sessions available to you as outlined under the Advanced Entry (Adv, Entry) tab below. You are welcome to attend campus over the course of StartWIT. While it is not mandatory to do so, it is a great opportunity to get to know your way around campus, meet some of your lecturing team, find your timetables, School Office and other information that aims to make settling in that little bit easier. 

Lectures

Classes for all years begin on Monday, 9th September 2019. Timetable for all students are available here. 

 

Parent and Family Orientation drop in query sessions

This year there is an informal drop in facility for Parents or Guardians during Orientation. Staffed by the Student Support Team, this will be an opportunity for any family member to ask questions about the Institute, about Waterford, get some information on supports over a cup of tea. 

These sessions will take place:

  • Wednesday 4th September @ 10.00am - 12.00 in Room F07
  • Thursday 5th September @ 10.00am - 12.00 in Room F07 - Cork Road Campus
