NUI Galway’s Health Promotion discipline will hold its annual open evening tomorrow, Friday February 28, from 6pm to 7.30pm in Áras Moyola, on the north campus.
The open evening will provide an overview of NUI Galway’s full and part time postgraduate courses by the course co-ordinators. Current courses include MA/postgraduate diploma in health promotion, outreach postgraduate certificates in health promotion including workplace wellness, approaches to cardiovascular health and diabetes prevention, and oral health.
There will also be a short presentation from a postgraduate recruitment officer, Valerie Leahy, who will offer advice on issues such as applications, funding, and what employers want from health promotion graduates. There will also be an opportunity for prospective students to meet course lecturers and tutors, who will be on hand to answer queries.
Dr Mary Jo Lavelle, director for postgraduate and specialist certificate programmes at NUI Galway, said: “The open evening gives prospective students the opportunity to get more information on the courses they are interested in, employment opportunities, and the chance to talk to members of the teaching staff on a one-to-one basis. Graduates of our programmes have gone on to work in statutory services, non-governmental organisations, in the academic sector, and in a number of roles including dedicated health promotion specialist posts."
