MA in Education
The generous support of our alumni through the alumni fund and the telephone campaign helps to support the education of students who are studying the MS in Education to qualify as teachers having themselves come to NUI Galway through the Access Programme. The fund will help student teachers through scholarships and bursaries to qualify with an MA in Education following on from their undergraduate degree.
The support of these students is part of NUI Galway's commitment to address educational disadvantage. Teachers who themselves have come to education from a disadvantaged background further encourages their students to pursue a third level education. By supporting students who have direct experience of social and economic disadvantage to become teachers it and the experience of the Access Programme we are inspiring them as teachers to create awareness amongst their pupils and their parents as to the possibilities of a university education.
