We recognise the uncertainty that the coronavirus outbreak has caused for applicants to WIT and other higher education institutions and we would like to reassure you that we will continue to work to ensure your transition to higher education is as straightforward as possible given the circumstances. In that regard we would encourage you to maintain contact with us but be patient as we adopt to the circumstances of remote working. Together we can look forward to a return to normal practice.

While every effort is being made to support applicants applying under any of the policies/categories referred to here, it is very important to remember that WIT will be guided at all times by WIT Academic Council, the Irish Health Service Executive and other relevant authorities with regard to processing and admissions to the Institute.
