Virtual Open Evenings 2023

Whether you are a Leaving Cert student exploring high-quality, non-CAO routes or an adult learner hoping to come back to study for career change or progression, at Portobello Institute we support you to choose the course for the career you want. We help you to make an informed decision because we understand how important it is for you to follow your passion and fulfil your potential. For this reason, we regularly hold virtual open evening sessions, online in the evenings to make them accessible to as many people as possible, we also record them so you can watch them back. This is an opportunity for you to hear about courses you are interested in directly from the tutors who will be teaching you if you choose to enrol. It gives you a feeling for the close-knit community at Portobello and the opportunity to ask questions mirroring our one-to-one personal support approach throughout all our programmes.


You can now sign up for our next round of Virtual Open Evenings on November 23rd 2023.
