NUI Galway’s virtual Postgraduate Open day takes place at midday Tuesday 16 November 2021 showcasing more than 400 taught and research study opportunities on offer for 2022.

The event will allow people to tune into live talks and panel discussions, engage directly with Programme Directors to explore courses, possible career opportunities and emerging trends across a host of sectors.

Among the new programmes being offered for entry in 2022 and showcased at the virtual open day are:

:: The online Artificial Intelligence for Managers, with fees subsidised by ITAG Skillnet, enabling graduates to strategise, envision projects and hire and manage teams without needing to study programming

:: Three new business and hospitality programmes with Shannon College, including the Postgraduate Certificate in Hospitality and Leadership.

:: MA in International Development Practice

:: Postgraduate Certificate in Cybersecurity and Business

Sarah Geraghty, Director of Student Recruitment and Outreach, NUI Galway, urged people who are considering further study to start exploring options early.

She said: “You may be looking for a course to develop specific specialist skills and expertise, or you may be aiming to change career paths and move to a new industry. Whatever your objective, it’s important to invest time early in finding out as much as possible about how to apply for and secure a place on the course that best suits your needs and also plan for how you can fit postgraduate studies into your life.”

NUI Galway’s postgraduate virtual open day will also bring together key staff in the University who can provide support and information to assist prospective students, including on fees, funding and scholarships, the value of a postgraduate qualification in the jobs market and plenty of tips for making a successful application.

Applications are now open for enrolment in 2022, and for many courses, applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.
