The first Open Week at the Killarney branch of Kerry College was deemed a success by event organisers.

Open Week 2024 welcomed over 2000 students, career changers, and jobseekers across its five campus locations in Listowel, Clash Road, Killorglin and Monavalley last week.

For the first time SINCE the Killarney Admissions Office opened its doors, visitors connected with the admissions team, current learners, teachers, instructors, the apprenticeship team, the Business Support Unit, representatives from the colleges’s Pathways Programmes, and many more.

They came to find out about the suite of full-time and part-time courses available in Killarney.
Furthermore, they found out about transport, childcare, and financial supports available to help them access their Kerry College journey to success.

“We were delighted to host our first open day in Killarney and would like to thank anyone who called in on the day. It was a great opportunity for us to showcase all we have on offer in Killarney for 2024. We have some exciting full and part-time courses in the pipeline and hope to continue to grow our offerings over time,” said Ella O’ Donoghue, Admissions Officer.
“The Admissions Office in Killarney is open Monday to Friday and we would urge anyone who is unsure of their next step to pop in and have a chat with us; this could be school leavers, parents, guardians, career changers. No appointment is necessary! We are here to answer queries about any of our courses or apprenticeships, but we will also do our best to help direct you to services or resources that you may need to make the journey back to education easy and accessible for you.”

An additional 2500 prospective learners attended the many events hosted across the week, including the Further Options Event, Information Evening, Kerry College of Beauty Open Evening, Apprenticeship Open Evening and Guest Speakers Event.
