NUI Galway Students’ Union has launched its Life Skills courses for the new academic year, with a range of courses on offer for students at the University.

For 12 years, the Students’ Union has been running a wide range of subsidised courses for the 19,000 students at NUI Galway with the aim of increasing their practical knowledge.

These courses help to improve the employment prospects of students during and after college by improving their CVs. They also teach important life skills such as how to save lives.

Students’ Union President Róisín Nic Lochlainn said: “We are delighted to announce details of our Life Skills courses for the year ahead.

“Whether it’s learning how to help someone who may be suicidal or gaining the skills to administer CPR, all of these courses help to provide a well-rounded education for our students whilst also helping them to make their CV’s stand out from the crowd when looking for jobs.”

The courses on offer from the Students’ Union this semester include: Sign Language; Gaeilge; Heartsaver AED; Suicide Awareness Training; Mental Health Training with Jigsaw; Child Protection Training; Anti-Racism Training; Disclosure Training with Galway Rape Crisis Centre; Strength and Conditioning Training; and Pilates.
