The Centre for Adult Learning and Professional Development at NUI Galway offers a series of short, non-accredited courses in a number of different subject areas each Autumn.
Designed for students with an interest in the subjects on offer, these courses may provide participants with an opportunity to meet interesting people to discuss ideas with, to find out more about specific study subjects and also to experience the world of lifelong learning.
The short courses start the week beginning 30th September and are run over 8 weeks, one evening per week (7 to 9pm) – with the exception of Introduction to the Alexander Technique and Creating your own Podcast: An introduction which take place over two Saturdays.
