This prospectus provides a guide to the one- and two-year courses on offer at Cavan Institute, as well as degree courses offered in partnership with Institutes of Technology. Each page provides details on the course content and curriculum, as well as progression and career opportunities. You’ll also find details on the range of services and supports we provide to students to help them make the most of their time with us. Cavan Institute was founded in 1985 and since then it’s grown to become one of the largest further education and training colleges in the country. With a focus on your achievement, academic and otherwise, our student-centred approach results in higher than average completion and certification rates (approx. 85% each year).
Over half of all our graduates (51%) go on to study for higher certificates, diplomas and degrees at Colleges of Further Education, Institutes of Technology and Universities in Ireland and the UK. A further 41% go directly into employment upon completion of their studies with us. Indeed, we’ve been informed that our graduates who progress to Institutes of Technology and Universities demonstrate higher engagement with the curriculum, are better able for continuous assessment at third level and attain excellent completion rates. Our graduates are highly sought-after as employees, as they qualify with awards relevant to specific industry sectors. So, a year or two spent pursuing a course at Cavan Institute is an ideal platform from which to progress to higher education or employment.
I hope you find a course or several that appeal to you and I encourage you to visit our campus on one of our Open Days in summer, autumn and spring. A warm welcome, and a world of knowledge and skills await you.
