NUI Galway To Host A Facebook Live To Help You Choose Your CAO Course

The CAO can be a real struggle. Thankfully, a panel of NUIG experts will be streamed onto your device through Facebook. The NUIG Facebook live is happening next week and will help you decide whether or not you should pursue your CAO choice.

The interactive broadcast will be streamed from NUIG's Galway Facebook page on Wednesday, 28 June, at 3 pm.

A panel of experts will assemble in the Aula to help students and parents with any questions on points, course choices, the registration process, accommodation options and support services.

Mary Liddy, Deputy Admissions Officer at NUI Galway, spoke about the live streaming event and called it 'The Big Decision' panel:

The final week before the 1st of July CAO Change of Mind deadline, is an important time for students to reflect and ensure they have made the right decisions in their CAO application. I will be joining The Big Decision panel to answer your questions on the application process and what is important to remember at this final stage of the application journey.

The panel will be made up of representatives from all over the campus and will be answering questions about course areas in the following areas:

  • Arts
  • Social Sciences & Celtic Studies
  • Medicine
  • Nursing & Health Sciences
  • Business
  • Public Policy & Law
  • Engineering
  • Informatics or Science.

Additionally, representatives from Admissions, Accommodation and Support Service teams will provide essential information on all aspects of the application process and student support systems.

The Facebook live is a real opportunity for students to understand their CAO selections and relieve anxiety. Emer Casey, a student counsellor at NUI Galway, said:

As a counsellor, I am very aware that students can get anxious when making big life decisions like this. I will be sharing some top tips in relation to the decision-making process and how to manage the anxiety that can be present at this time. These are useful tips that can help with any decision, especially one that seems daunting.

In terms of University ranking, NUIG is the only Irish University to have risen in the QS World University Rankings over the last five years. The college is now in the top 1%. 96% of undergraduate students are in employment or further study within six months of graduating.

Leaving Certificate students and parents can post questions via the Facebook live video on Wednesday, 28th, at 3 pm. If you would like to ask questions in advance you can email [email protected].
