Discover University is an 8-day summer programme run by the Early Learning Initiative, held in the National College of Ireland from June 19th- 28th 2019 (excluding the weekend). It aims to give young people aged 14-17 from Dublin’s inner city the opportunity to experience a taste of life at university. Students may choose one of four subjects: Business, Computing, Early Childhood Education and Psychology. They then work in groups to complete a project in their chosen subject throughout the week, while they also attend lectures, workshops, company tours, excursions and loads of other activities! Each group will be mentored and supported by a team leader (a third level NCI student) and NCI faculty staff. Students must be available to attend from 10am-4pm each day. The programme is free of charge and lunch will be provided daily.
