Student Engagement Officer 
Our Student Engagement Officer is Carolyn O’Brien.  Carolyn is looking forward to extending a ‘Céad Míle Fáilte’ - an Irish greeting, meaning ‘one hundred thousand welcomes’ - to each of our Summer School students this year.  
Carolyn will contact you prior to the beginning of your course to assist you in connecting to our online learning platform.  She will be available to you during your course and will keep you informed of our free weekly social programme and workshops.
Carolyn is looking forward to supporting you throughout your journey with us this summer!
