Job Seeking Graduates Given Access to Subsidised Education at TCD

Posted on: 07 August 2009

Trinity College’s School of Computer Science and Statistics, in partnership with the School of Linguistic, Speech and Communication Sciences, has introduced two new and innovative programmes this autumn under the Higher Education Authority’s (HEA) Labour Market Activation Programmes initiative.  Twenty-five job-seeking graduates will have the opportunity to study on the postgraduate courses which are specifically aimed at up-skilling and re-skilling workers for jobs in the sectors of the economy considered key to tackling the recession and driving economic growth.

The two new postgraduate diplomas in computing with an interdisciplinary outlook will run on a part-time basis over two years.  These courses are designed to provide an ideal opportunity for students to build a flexible programme of learning and will enable participants to improve their computer science skills while also broadening and developing career options in partner disciplines.  Graduates with an interest in computing are encouraged to pursue further education in a field which is essential in underpinning the ICT sector and the broader knowledge economy.

Further information on these programmes is available on the Graduate Studies website.  Applications from suitably qualified applicants may be made via the Postgraduate Applications Centre from Monday 10th August 2009.  The closing date for applications is Friday 21st August 2009.
