We are currently planning our next Junior Health Sciences Academy Early Careers Event for January/February 2024.....


This year's Junior Health Sciences Academy Early Careers Event was held on Tuesday the 28th February 2023.

What was it?
This was a virtual live event hosted by the Health Sciences Academy in conjunction with Limerick & Clare Education & Training Board and Limerick Education Support Centre. It aims to provide information on careers and programmes of study in health. It was the 3rd year hosting this successful event.

Building on the success of the past 2 years, and incorporating feedback from students, we have
created this event to be as informative and interactive as possible.
