We understand that the transition to third level can be challenging. We make every effort to ensure that our new students fully understand the system at the Institute and that they know how to access the numerous academic resources and personal and professional supports that are available to them. All new students receive details about the services during their Orientation week.
A Third Level Education That Prepares Your Son or Daughter For Life
As a parent or guardian, you will want your son or daughter to be happy, healthy and successful. An education delivers more than a qualification and career - it also prepares the student for life. Students who have well informed enthusiastic people supporting them do better at college and in life.
Please encourage your son or daughter to always contact us if they have any questions so that we can help or refer them to the right service.
If you are concerned about your son or daughter and make contact directly with us - we will absolutely listen and try and help by giving you guidance and advice on what you can do.
If the issue is serious, we will take note of your concerns and alert those at the Institute with pastoral responsibility towards your son or daughter that may be able to help. We cannot guarantee to offer you confidentiality as our duty of care is to the student, but we will take into account your preferences about whether we let your son or daughter know you have been in touch when deciding how best of proceed.
We will not be able to have a discussion with you or give you information about your son or daughter. You will appreciate that our relationship is with the student and that we cannot communicate with third parties, including parents, about their child without the student’s consent.
