Post Event Update


Over 10,000 TY students/5th Year Students joined us over the the 2 event. Our objective was to share the variety of healthcare careers, what it is like to work in the acute hospital and community settings, and indeed what it is like to study as a student in University of Limerick. We heard about entry requirements, subject choices and alternative routes to securing your career of choice. Our guest speakers too spoke of their career journeys, how they have dealt with challenges and what enabled them to rise to the top of their game.

A career in healthcare is such a rewarding career, with continual learning, career development opportunities and the ability to work in a variety of settings, at home and abroad. Key themes of teamwork, friendship and flexibility all came through during our event. So as you consider where to next, remember not to give up, be brave, don’t be afraid to fail and most of all, have fun and enjoy the journey!
