Corvinus students will have the opportunity to experience what it is like to be an undergraduate student, to attend lectures with other undergraduate students and to experience focused study in special tutorial groups. The programme includes varied workshops (in 2020, these included Creative Writing, Theatre and Performance and Visual Literacy: see link to Corvinus 2020).

This structured programme introduces TY students to a broader third-level student experience and will include a tour of the campus, an introduction to the library and a career talk.

At the end of the course, the students will receive a Certificate of Completion.


Application: Entry is by application and limited to fifteen places only. 

Students will be admitted to the programme on the basis of their motivational statements and the subjects they are studying for Leaving Cert.
