Transition Year Students participate in NUIG research project

Transition Year Students participate in NUIG research project

TY students took part in a NUIG research project entitled: “Students’ perspectives on barriers to higher education access and teaching as a profession”.

This workshop, facilitated by Ms Lisa King aimed to explore the perspectives of TY students in relation to access to higher education and to help support their understanding regarding accessing higher education and the teaching profession.

The research was conducted on Tuesday 2nd March. Participating in this research involved completion of an online pre-workshop questionnaire, participation in a live online workshop and post-workshop evaluation. Students benefitted from participating by gaining valuable information regarding access routes to higher education, useful information which is directly applicable to students as they enter their Leaving Certificate course next year.

Many thanks also to Ms King who facilitated the workshop.

What participating students said about the workshop:

“Brilliant workshop, I really enjoyed it and it was really helpful”

“It was very helpful, highly detailed, encouraging and interesting”

“Very detailed and well explained”

“Very reassuring, if Plan A doesn’t work there are other routes.”

“I found this workshop very informative and relevant to my future and I learnt many new things.

“It’s really great to know that if you really want to do something there will always be a way.”
