This informative talk is specifically for parents of prospective students. The talk is delivered by expert staff and will provide you with a parent's guide to IADT. It takes place in the Library with a welcome address from the President. We encourage parents to stay for this talk and for your children to use the opportunity to explore other talks and information stands.

Whether you have attended university yourself or not, application, admission and enrolment to University can be confusing. We hope to provide you with information on some of IADT’s services and facilities which may be of interest to you as the parent of a prospective student.
