While it may seem that we have just started Semester 2, in reality what with reading week and Easter coming up your first year in college is almost over. Scary or perhaps you are all thrilled! It is now time to seriously plan year two.
Every day of college counts but the subject choices, you make now for year two and three will have a significant impact on your future. Don’t look back in 5 years time and think I really should have chosen different subjects, subjects that really interest me and subjects that would lead me towards a fulfilling career.
You are not on your own making these decisions. Actually, you are in a very privileged position in that there are a myriad of supports readily available to you. Kilkenny Campus facilitates presentations and one to one advice sessions with experts to ensure you have all the information you need to make informed decisions.
Caitriona McGrattan, Programme Advisory, Maynooth University, recently visited the campus to talk about the programme related decisions you will have to make for next year. From double major, to major with a minor to single major and elective options, there was lots of information to get your heads around.
Her presentation was clear and concise and really showcased the exciting future you can have if you work hard and apply yourself. With all the subject options open to you, we should have a very knowledgeable bunch graduating in two years time.
Caitriona will return to campus shortly for one to one advice sessions with students giving you the opportunity to chat though your individual concerns.
