Conversion courses: postgraduate

Want to change direction?

Considering postgraduate study but want to change direction away from the focus of your undergraduate degree? A postgraduate conversion course is ideal for you, and could be a valuable investment in your future, as it will allow you to explore a vocational field and enhance your job prospects.

Graduates may be eligible for courses offered through other Colleges, and do not need to concentrate their search for a programme in their own specific College. For example, an Arts graduate could choose to apply to a Law course (e.g., LLB) or a Business course (e.g., HDip [Business Studies]).

The listing below refers to the courses that are especially “interdisciplinary” and welcome applicants from various Colleges.

College of Arts, Social Sciences, and Celtic Studies

Graduate profile

Charlene Trigueiro

Charlene Trigueiro

MSc (Marketing) [formerly MSc Strategic Marketing]

"NUI Galway's reputation, as well as the range of modules offered, appealed to me in the first place. Also, the quality of the Masters was very high. The class-size was small enough to allows students to get to know each other and to easily ask lecturers for help or advice. I would recommend NUI Galway because of the quality of the lecturers, the quality of the teaching materials used, and the standards expected of students. Also the course allowed me to advance my academic writing, desk research, and develop strong analytical skills in marketing."
