Personalised Student Pathways

Pillar one of Designing Futures will work with students to design their future through the creation of a personalised skills pathway. 

This will be achieved by:

Creating personalised skills pathways with the support of Student Success Coaches across the Colleges of Arts, Social Sciences and Celtic Students and Science and Engineering using Stanford’s Designing For Life methodology. Meet our student success coaches

Creating transdisciplinary elective modules that enhance students’ professional skills, designed by experts from across the university and with input from our enterprise partners. Modules already available include Communicating through Storytelling, Introduction to Sustainability and Megatrends.

Developing an exciting new type of module called ‘Vertically Integrated Projects’ or VIPs.  Through VIPs, students work in teams with faculty on multidisciplinary, longitudinal research projects to address grand challenges. Students earn credits and can participate in multiple semesters, with returning students taking on additional leadership/project responsibilities.  "Vertically Integrated" refers to VIP team compositions, which can include undergraduate, postgraduate (taught) and research students in addition to University staff. NUI Galway will become a member of the VIP Consortium led by Georgia Institute of Technology.
