Our Guidance Counsellor is specially trained to help you with information, advice and guidance. The Guidance service promotes workshops on CAO and UCAS applications and coordinates visiting speakers and opportunities to visit colleges and universities.
Our Learning Resource Centre includes our student library, and you will have access to books, information, learning-support materials, computers and photocopying. It is an open-access space, where you study and work on projects and assignments. In our new Institute buildings, our Student Support Team are based in the Learning Resource Centre. For students seeking additional help with their learning, workshops and assistance with academic work are available through the Learning Resource Centre. See the Open Learning and Students with Additional Needs section for more information.
All Carlow Institute students can access our Virtual Learning Environment Moodle. You’ll find assignment briefs, calendars, notes and resources online, helping you keep ahead in your work. Useful information and updates, and our policies and procedures, can be found on Moodle.
Your opinion really matters to us and all students are automatically affiliated to the Student Council. The Student Council meets regularly, and helps communicate student views to us, which helps improve our services to you. The council also organises social events and each course is represented in its membership. Full details of how to get involved are available at the start of the course. Carlow Institute’s Student Council is affiliated with the Union of Students of Ireland, and they take a very active role in supporting and promoting the Council and its activities.
