January NUI Galway’s Postgraduate Open Day to Showcase Scholarship and Funding Opportunities for 2020
NUI Galway’s Postgraduate Open Day to Showcase Scholarship and Funding Opportunities for 2020
NUI Galway will host the Spring Postgraduate Open Day on Tuesday, 4 February, from 12-3pm in the Bailey Allen Hall, Áras na Mac Léinn. The Open Day will showcase all of NUI Galway’s full-time and part-time postgraduate programmes, including taught and research masters, as well as doctoral research options.
The Open Day will have a strong focus on how to make postgraduate studies affordable and the multiple funding and scholarship opportunities that future students should explore when considering investing in their education and career. There will be a number of talks including a panel discussion on career pathways post-graduation, grant opportunities, postgraduate funding and the application process. The panel will be joined by Hugh Hamrock, Bank Manager, Bank of Ireland, NUI Galway branch, who will advise on banking services to support postgraduate studies. The talks will also include a presentation on the Hardiman PhD Scholarship scheme and a Personal Statement Workshop by the Career Development Centre.
All EU postgraduate students presenting a first class honours in their undergraduate degree are eligible for a €1,500 scholarship towards their taught Masters at NUI Galway. Current postgraduate student, Sinead Shaughnessy, is a recipient of one of NUI Galway’s Excellence Scholarships. According to Sinead: “The postgraduate scholarship allowed me to further my studies and enhance my future career prospects. It incentivised me to work hard throughout my undergraduate degree to achieve First Class Honours. I am currently studying a MSc in Human Resource Management which will give me a distinct edge in the industry when applying for jobs.”
Valerie Leahy, Postgraduate Recruitment Officer at NUI Galway, said: “We especially encourage visitors considering a return to university studies to attend our Postgraduate Open Day. Almost half of those applying to our postgrad courses are not recent graduates, they are returning to study or upskill for their current job. Support is offered to those who have been out of the education system for some time and our research shows that students from industry or the home returning to education flourish academically.”
NUI Galway have launched a range of new postgraduate programmes in 2019 and 2020, including MA Global Media and Communication, MA Rural Futures Planning and Innovation, MA Sports Journalism and Communication, MSc Applied Multilingualism, MSc Computer Science – Artificial Intelligence, and MA Creative Arts: Producing and Curation. Information on all new programmes, along with NUI Galway’s 170 other postgraduate programmes will be available at the exhibition in the Bailey Allen Hall.
