Cavan Institute (Previously Cavan College of Further Studies) was established by Cavan VEC in 1984 in response to the ever increasing demand for higher education in the area. It has grown to be one of the largest Post Leaving Certificate colleges outside of Dublin and Cork.
The college is located in the heart of Cavan town, opposite the new shopping complex. Although the student population is rapidly increasing, the college still maintains a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
The college offers an extensive range of courses specifically directed towards employment demands. Courses include Business Studies, Teleservices, Computer Programming, Computer Applications, Travel and Tourism, Leisure Studies, Art, Craft and Design, Accounting, Nursing Studies, Child Care, Social Studies and Equestrian Studies.
A unique link has been developed over the past number of years with Athlone Institute of Technology. There are now three courses involved in this link: National Certificate in Business Studies - General, National Certificate in Business Studies - Office Information Systems and the National Certificate in Applied Social Studies - Social Care.
