Finding Your Way to Education

On Friday February 23rd 2018 Dr Kathy Reilly provided a keynote address at an event held at GMIT’s Castlebar campus entitled ‘Finding your Way to Education’. The event included academics, community stakeholders and representatives from migrant communities across the West of Ireland and particularly included information for refugees and asylum seekers who are looking to access third-level education. Drawing on research completed with Dr Valerie Ledwith (also Geography, NUI Galway), Dr Reilly presented findings on migrant educational experiences in Galway City and urban-fringe, focusing specifically on issues of educational access, achievement and aspiration.
