Survey Dates

Survey Live:  17 February – 6 March 2020

Each participating institution selects a specific three-week period during February and March to open the survey for their students. This allows the national survey to take account of local events and other demands on students’ time in order to increase the benefit of the survey at local level – “national survey, local impact“.

#Fresher6 is an Extended Induction Programme that has been developed in response to feedback received from the StudentSurvey.ie and LYIT’s Admissions De-Registration Report Data 2017/18. #Fresher6 is a six week Extended Induction Programme designed to support first years making the transition to third level education. Each week is themed to support a different aspect of transitioning to higher education. Some of the weekly themes include advice on financing the third-level journey; information and advice on what to do if you'd like to transfer internally to alternative course and information on the Support Services available at LYIT.
