Each year St. Kilian’s hosts an annual Careers Fair which is open to over 650 students and their parents from 12 local schools. The Fair provides students with expert advice on university courses and career choices. Over 25 universities and third level colleges from Ireland attend alongside representatives from the Air corps, an Garda Siochana and a number of Universities from Germany, Switzerland, France and Spain.
Part of the careers programme for 12th class students includes an extensive round of University talks. These talks are given by liaison officers from each of the Universities between September and December of the Leaving Certificate year. Interested students also have the opportunity to attend the Oxford University open days. The trip to Oxford is organised by the Guidance Counsellor and takes place in the first term of the school year.
