Dear <<First Name>>,

Welcome to our special Christmas issue of the CIT Extended Campus newsletter. 
This month we'd like to highlight the benefits that accrue when students engage with industry.


“The organisations that work with us to provide students with practice-based learning experiences play a valuable part of the formation of work-ready and world-ready graduates. These interactions also help the organisations to get a better understanding of the range of courses and the ability and enthusiasm of our students and graduates. We work with organisations, large and small, public, private and not-for-profit – I hope that this small selection will help to illustrate the potential.” 

- Prof Irene Sheridan, Head of CIT Extended Campus

CIT continues to partner with industry on a daily basis. If this is something that is of interest to you, please contact us in Extended Campus at or 021 433 5302 to discuss engagement opportunities in more detail. 

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy 2019!
