FOR the first time since the Covid pandemic, the Technological University of the Shannon (TUS) is hosting two open days at its Limerick city campuses.
Secondary school students will have unlimited access to the Moylish campus and Limerick School of Art and Design’s Clare Street campus on Thursday and Friday October 20 and 21 to learn what the region’s newest university has to offer.
They will have the opportunity to get a first-hand look at the campuses’ facilities, attend topical talks, learn about courses, meet their future lecturers and other TUS staff and students.
TUS Director of Marketing and Communications Shane Malone said that with the onset of the pandemic in 2020, students and staff learnt to adapt to life through a screen.
“We explored new places and things through technology, and while this was invaluable during the pandemic, I think students are looking for in person interactions now. To truly appreciate life on campus, it is important for second level students to walk the corridors of the campuses, meet their lecturers, the students they will follow into lecture halls, labs and classrooms, and even sample the restaurants”.
The Moylish Campus Open Day and LSAD, Clare Street Open Day will run from 9.30am to 1pm on October 20 and 21.
These events are part of the Limerick Open Days programme which is running at the University of Limerick, TUS and Mary Immaculate College over the two-day period.
