College Awareness Week is a national campaign which aims to promote the benefits of going to college, to help students of all ages to become college-ready and to showcase local role models.

College Awareness Week is a multi-organisational and collaborative initiative involving a wide range of stakeholders, including schools, HEIs, museums, libraries and businesses. Here are just some of the organisations that partner with the campaign: the Higher Education Authority, the National Association of Principals and Deputy Principals and Trinity College Dublin.

Going to college is becoming more and more important. A college education helps students to fulfil their potential, allows them to undertake a course of study which can be both fascinating and challenging, and helps them to secure employment and decent living standards in the future. Individuals and society benefit from increased levels of educational attainment. Play your part in inspiring the next generation of college students and help them to become college-ready!
