October NUI Galway Open Day to Showcase Over 200 Postgraduate Programmes
NUI Galway will hold its annual Postgraduate Open Day on Tuesday, 6 November, from 12-3pm in the Bailey Allen Hall, Áras na Mac Léinn. The Open Day is an important event for professionals, graduates and current undergraduates who are focusing on their future, with the aim of upgrading their qualification, broadening their skills-set, increasing their specialist knowledge and ultimately improving their job prospects and earning power.
The Open Day will showcase over 170 of NUI Galway’s full-time and part-time postgraduate taught programmes, and an extensive range of research masters and doctoral research options. Academic staff and students will be on hand to answer questions on specific courses and opportunities at the University.
Talks at the Postgraduate Day will include a panel discussion on Postgraduate Practicalities, chaired by the Director of Student Services John Hannon. Professor Lucy Byrnes, Dean of Graduate Studies, will give a talk on Funding for Postgraduate Research (PhDs and Research Masters). The Career Development Centre will also be hosting a Personal Statement Workshop on the day.
Valerie Leahy, Postgraduate Recruitment Officer, explains why students should seriously start researching their options early: “A key part of the decision to pursue a postgraduate qualification is finding out as much as possible about the application process and the funding options available. The upcoming Open Day brings together all the key people and organisations that provide support to postgraduate students.”
NUI Galway is also launching a number of new programmes for entry in 2019, and the Open Day will showcase these offerings including a number of new Masters of Education options: MEd Special Inclusion Education; MEd (Education in Design, Learning and Technology); and MEd Education Leadership. The Irish Centre for Human Rights at NUI Galway also recently launched LLM International Migration and Refugee Law and Policy, which will focus on developing knowledge of international, regional and domestic law, policy and practice in areas of migration, human trafficking and refugee law. Those interested in finding out more about this unique programme will have the opportunity to meet academic staff at Postgraduate Open Day. Other new courses being launched include MSc AgInnovation, MSc Interventional Cardiovascular Medicine, MSc Cheminformatics and Toxicology.
