NUI Galway will hold its annual mature student information evening on Wednesday, January 16, from 5.30pm to 8pm in the Lifecourse Institute on the north campus. The information evening will allow attendees to find out more and get advice on full-time or part-time degrees on offer at the university, and on possible career opportunities.
This special information evening is designed for those aged 23 or over wishing to find out more about study options at NUI Galway. The event focuses on students who did not have opportunities to study an undergraduate degree in the past. The aim of the information evening is to encourage lifelong learning, irrelevant of age or background.
The university’s mature students officer, Trish Bourke, will give a welcome presentation explaining the CAO application procedure for anyone wishing to apply to a full-time degree in 2019. The access office will be there to offer advice on pre-university courses in terms of Access programmes, and the disability support services team, who have expertise in supporting students at third level, will also be in attendance to give guidance to prospective students.
Trish Bourke, NUI Galway’s mature student officer, said: “As a mature student graduate of NUI Galway, I always look forward to this evening and meeting people who would not ordinarily think that university was for them, and to see how engaged they are when they hear how many supports and options there are to help them achieve their dreams. There is a place for everyone at NUI Galway whether it is through an Access course, a full-time degree, or through our Centre for Adult Learning and Professional Development Programmes.”
