Why Go Virtual?

Virtual Education Expo is Ireland’s new online course fair, designed specifically for those seeking online course options from Irish course providers during the current Covid-19 situation. If you are thinking of enrolling on a course over the coming months, going to college, doing a postgraduate degree, returning to education, upskilling, changing career direction, taking professional, holistic or hobbyist courses or looking for information on courses, classes and educational options generally, you must attend our virtual, online expo, taking place on 18th June on a PC, iPad or smartphone near you.

Virtual Education Expo has grown out of the successful physical Education Expo, which runs at the RDS in Dublin every August/September. Like a traditional courses fair, prospective students will have the opportunity to meet with education providers and talk through study options. Once you have registered, you can request information and arrange times to meet with educational institutions during the event. All these meetings take place online using our mobile friendly platform. Virtual Education Expo requires no downloads or heavy software installations. All you need is an internet connection and a browser. This is a flexible, fun, and cost-effective way to meet colleges, compare courses, ask questions and gather information. Best of all, it’s absolutely free!

During the Expo, we will be running a series of online seminars in our virtual Seminar Zone. These are talks by educational experts, career coaches and industry insiders. In addition, you will also be able to make an appointment with a professional development coach and avail of free expert career advice at our Career Clinic.
