Transitions at MTU (formerly Transitions to CIT) is a funding stream available from AnSEO - The Student Engagement Office which can be accessed each year as one of three funding streams through the Teaching & Learning Unit (TLU) and AnSEO's Combined Funding Call.

The Transitions at MTU fund has been available on MTU Cork campuses since 2013/14 and in that time we have funded in excess of 240 projects that focus on enhancing transitions to MTU Cork campuses for all students.

What are the objectives of the fund?

While most projects address particular concerns of individual departments with regard to enhancing the new first year transition, projects with a focus on other key student transition points are welcomed. These might include students transitioning:

  • Into second, third or final year of their studies
  • From undergraduate to postgraduate study
  • From full time study to periods of work placement
  • From periods of work placement back to full time study
  • From employment into full-time or part-time study. 

Who should apply?

Any individual staff member or team (academic, technical, administrative) who would like to develop an idea or project related to the transitions experienced during the student life cycle.

What types of project are suitable?

Some examples of types of suitable projects include;

  • Development of School/department specific Student Guides to Success: webpages, hardcopy, usb keys etc.
  • Staff / student relationship building events.
  • Social induction/ icebreaking activities/ meet and greet events with first year academic staff and later year students.
  • Academic Induction seminars.
  • Role model seminars.
  • A Faculty/ school based social media welcome campaign.
  • First year notice boards and first year team profiles.
  • Competitions and prizes.
  • Collaborative events with Good Start team.
