NUI Galway to hold Autumn Postgrad Open Day next week

NUI Galway will hold its annual Autumn Postgraduate Open Day next Tuesday, which will take place virtually due to the current Covid restrictions.

The open day will take place on Tuesday, 24 November from 12.00 to 7.00pm, exploring the hundreds of taught and research postgraduate programmes enrolling in 2021.

The virtual event will give visitors with the chance to explore courses and careers by attending live talks with the option to ask questions and to hear directly from programme directors.

In addition to subject and programme specific talks, there will be presentations on all the practicalities of preparing for postgraduate study.

Key talks include: Fees, Funding and Scholarships; Graduate Studies: Funding my PhD; and Enhancing my Employability with a Postgrad Qualification.

“A key part of the decision to pursue a Masters is finding out as much as possible about the potential programmes that could be right for you, the application process and the funding options available,” said Valerie Leahy, Postgraduate Recruitment Officer.

“The upcoming virtual open day is a one day event where you can gather all of this information in one place and get ready to make a successful application to your course of choice.”

NUI Galway is also launching a number of new postgraduate programmes for entry in 2021 which will be included in the open day showcase.

The College of Arts, Social Sciences and Celtic Studies is launching a number of new postgraduate options including: MSc Adolescent Health, MA/PDip Child, Youth and Community; MA/PDip in Public Policy; and options in Consumer Psychology and in Education Studies.

The College of Science & Engineering is offering a new MSc Genomics Data Science which combines highly-sought after skills in genetics, statistics, and data analytics and will provide advanced training in the computational techniques used to analyse and understand genomic data, allowing graduates to work in the emerging field of genomic and precision medicine.
