We are delighted to announce that at the International European First Year Experience Conference - EFYE2018 - in Utrecht, Cork Institute of Technology was formally selected and announced as the host institute for EFYE 2019. This is a recognition of CIT’s commitment to enhancing the First Year Experience and our ongoing and real reputation for student engagement across the student lifecycle since CIT’s inception. There were over 315 delegates from higher education institutions and policy makers across 22 countries at EFYE2018, and CIT expects to attract similar numbers and as diverse a range of nationalities to CIT next June and will be looking to attract a significant national audience also.
EFYE2019 will take place in CIT on June 17,18 and 19 June 2019. This will be the first time the EFYE conference comes to Ireland and our selection was based on a proposal made to the EFYE committee by AnSEO – The Student Engagement Office on behalf of CIT, following an invitation to bid by committee members on hearing about our student engagement work at last year’s conference in Birmingham City University.
We look forward to sharing many more CIT student engagement collaborations at EFYE2019.
Rísam Úile, let us all achieve.
