Mature Students and Adult Learners Information Evening

Register you interest here 

Wednesday, 11 January 202318:30 – 21:00 GMT

Location: Institute for Lifecourse and Society Upper Newcastle Road Galway. For directions click here.

The event will focus on the needs of Mature Students and Adult Learners who may be considering full-time or part-time studies for the 2023-4. There will be an emphasis on applying to a full-time degree aimed at those who never thought it was possible and could not for a diverse range of reasons attend third level in earlier years.  All adult learners are welcome no matter what your age or educational background as the University offers so much more than just full-time degrees. Adult Learning will be there to advise of part-time and flexible learning options and the Access Centre will be available to discuss pre-university preparatory options, our Access Programmes.

The Mature Students Officer will explain the CAO application procedure and other useful information. Other presentations on part-time and flexible studies will be given and staff from the colleges will be in attendance to answer any academic questions.
