Students can visit the Programme Office during opening hours (Monday to Friday 09.30 to 13.00 and 14.15 – 17.00; with extended hours during term time), contact the team by email/phone or make an appointment.
Before term commences each year, incoming students have exclusive access to a comprehensive incoming student portal, which outlines general information introducing the school and all available services as well as detailed information specific to the courses being undertaken.
The Programme Office hosts an orientation programme for each course during the week prior to start of term, during which students receive guidance on how they can access services on-campus and find their feet so that they can settle into Smurfit School life quickly.
Prior to the Orientation week, the School holds a ‘Welcome to Ireland’ Orientation day for all international students. Events on the day are designed to introduce new international students to the Irish education system, provide support for the settling-in period and enhance integration among students.
