Ever considered studying part time to boost your career skills? You should, according to University of Ulster career consultant Helen Bingham
Tomorrow, the University of Ulster is hosting an Information Day at its Belfast campus to showcase the vast range of part-time study options available on the campus .From short courses in latest creative technologies to full-scale undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, it’s all available.
The event, hosted on Thursday 27 June, between 12-7pm in the Belfast campus, will allow everyone to find out about the first-class courses and learning facilities on offer at Ulster.
Attendees will be able to meet with staff and existing students, get detailed information about part-time courses and speak to advisors about finance and student support.
As well as sixth-form students and recent school leavers who may prefer to study part-time, the event is aimed at mature students, people coming to university with Access Diplomas and anyone else thinking of undertaking part-time study.
Helen explains: “This event is open to anyone interested in part-time study at the University. This includes school leavers considering part-time study in place of full-time undergraduate options, to employees wanting to study part-time to fit around their job and further their career.
“It will also appeal to those who did not take the opportunity of third level education the first time around, or are hoping to return to work and feel they would benefit from qualifications – usually through the Access Diploma route.
“Finally, if someone just wants to return to study for the pure enjoyment of learning – maybe they have some free time, maybe they have retired – we have a range of qualifications from short courses through to full master’s degrees – there’s something to suit everyone.”
It’s all very informal – just drop in at whatever time is convenient – there's no need to book.
