With the CAO deadline fast approaching on 1 February, NUI Galway will host a CAO Information Evening for parents and Leaving Certificate students. The event will take place in the Arts Millennium Building on campus on Tuesday, 20 January from 7–9pm.

NUI Galway recognises the key role that parents play in supporting students as they take this important next step, and the CAO Information Evening will ensure that parents have access to all of the information needed in supporting their child through their University career.

With over 60 degree courses on offer by NUI Galway, the evening will begin with a series of short talks on the University. This will be then followed by College specific talks on Arts, Business, Law, Engineering and Informatics, Science, Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences.

NUI Galway’s Schools Liaison Officer, Gráinne Dunne, said: “This is an excellent opportunity to talk to representatives from all NUI Galway’s Colleges about the subjects your son or daughter is interested in and to find out about practical issues and the wide range of support services available to our students.”
