LIT Schools’ Liaison Office
The Schools’ Liaison Office at LIT offers a range of services to aid in the promotion of third level education and more specifically, to encourage students to consider LIT as their college of choice.
We appreciate that choosing what course to study and what college to attend are major decisions for students. There are many factors to consider, from course availability and entry requirements to college location and accommodation costs.
Our Schools’ Liaison service aims to provide students with relevant information about our courses, as well as information on entry requirements, student support services and student life in general at LIT. The Schools’ Liaison Office is an ideal point of contact for second level and post leaving certificate students considering their college options, as well as for Parents or Guardians, Guidance Counsellors, School Principals or anyone wishing to find out more about LIT and our range of courses and services.
