NUI Galway to Hold Information Evening in Dundalk

Nov 27 2018 Posted: 14:28 GMT

Students interested in studying at NUI Galway are invited to an Information Evening in Dundalk on Thursday, 6 December. Students, parents, guardians and guidance counsellors are invited to attend the event which runs from 7 to 9pm in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Dundalk.

The evening will begin with short talks about NUI Galway and the undergraduate courses it offers. Afterwards, current students and NUI Galway staff will be on hand to answer any individual questions in relation to courses and practical issues like accommodation, fees and scholarships, and the wide range of support services available to our students.

The ever-increasing popularity of NUI Galway is in-part due to its innovative programmes developed in response to the changing needs of the employment market. NUI Galway is launching three new Arts degrees for enrolment in 2019. This includes a BA (History and Globalisation), BA Government (Politics, Economics and Law) and a BA Education (Computer Science and Mathematical Studies).  The University will also launch a new degree in Law and Human Rights for 2019 and Dr Conor Hanly from the School of Law will give a short presentation on Law at NUI Galway.

The event will also have representatives from across the University’s five colleges available to answer questions about the programmes on offer, entry requirements, and placement and employment opportunities. St. Angela’s College and Shannon College of Hotel Management, both colleges of NUI Galway, will also attend the event. Members of the Accommodation Office will be on hand to answer any queries about on-campus or off-campus options, including the new Goldcrest on-campus development, which sees 429 new beds this year, bringing the total of on-campus beds to 1193.

Sarah Geraghty, Student Recruitment and Outreach Manager at NUI Galway, said: “NUI Galway is dedicated to excellence in teaching and learning with a focus on developing highly skilled and employable graduates and dedicated to providing a positive, welcoming and inclusive student experience. The Information Evening in Dundalk is an opportunity for students to take a closer look at the opportunities available at NUI Galway and explore what it means to study at a world class university”.
