Good Start

Good Start aims to help new students to find their way in CIT by focusing on success, belonging, motivation and independence; the whole student experience.

The Good Start programme of social, sporting, study and support sessions and events will help new students become familiar with the campus, settle in, meet people, get prepared for study and find out who’s here to help, all while having fun.

Good Start is run by students for students. The Good Start Ambassadors are a team of current students who want to make the transition to CIT a positive experience for new students. They are a friendly bunch, who love to help and point students in the right direction, so don't be shy just say hi!

There will be plenty of activities, events and competitions to during 'Good Start' - pun intended - across all of the CIT campuses. So whether your in Cork city, Bishopstown or Ringaskiddy there will be prizes to be won and fun to be had during the first five weeks of college.

The Good Start Ambassadors, and all of us here in CIT Student Engagement Office (AnSEO), look forward to meeting our new students this coming September!

If you have any queries pop us an email to and we will get back to you asap.
