Students considering studying at NUI Galway are invited to the CAO change of mind clinic taking place on campus on Tuesday June 25. Parents and guardians are also welcome to attend the event, which runs from 12 noon to 3pm in the Human Biology Building on campus.
The CAO change of mind facility closes at 5.15pm on Monday, July 1, and the clinic aims to assist with the CAO decision making process. Representatives from all of NUI Galway’s colleges will be available to answer any questions students may have in relation to the course, academic content, admissions, and more.
There will also be representatives from the accommodation office, access and disability services, admissions, sports, and fees, who will all be available to support students in their transition from secondary school to third level education at NUI Galway.
Sarah Geraghty, student recruitment and outreach manager at NUI Galway, said: “The change of mind clinic at NUI Galway is designed to answer the last minute queries of students and parents and provide advice and reassurance on course choice and entry routes. In our experience, the best way to prepare for unexpectedly low or high Leaving Certificate results is to have a plan B and a plan C fully researched. Our clinic on June 25 is a great opportunity for students and parents to get ready for the results in August, and more importantly, to get ready for university life in September.”
