Career Guidance

Cólaiste Chiaráin is firmly committed to ensuring full student support and guidance throughout the year with the CAO, UCAS and Eunicas application process. Regular advise and direction on a one-to-one basis with regards to subject choice and 3rd level course options is provided by the guidance counsellor. Career presentations from universities, 3rd level institutions and government bodies are provided. Monthly newsletters with career information are also provided.

Many of our students choose to study at the top universities in Ireland, UK and Europe. The guidance counsellor builds a rapport with each student and keeps them aware of the best range of options available to them at post-Leaving Cert level in Ireland and abroad.
