On Friday 15th September, 6th year students from St. Kevin's went to the RDS which was hosting this year's Higher Options. This event was a showcase of over 180 colleges, universities, PLCs and apprenticeships that are on offer here in Ireland. There were also a number of colleges and universities from England who were on hand to answer any questions students had about applying through the English system UCAS.
There were a number of talks on the day offering CAO advice as well as talks on medicine, STEM and nursing to name but a few.
It was a very busy event with every stand full of eager students asking questions. Students left with their bags full of prospectus and leaflets from the various institutions.
It is now decision time for the students; What is their next step?
