This project will promote EU job opportunities at NUI Galway by educating students about the variety of job possibilities the EU has to offer and encouraging them to apply for careers in the EU, and its institutions and agencies.

It aims to help empower students to make successful transitions towards employment and support the Irish government’s goal of addressing the issue of Irish underrepresentation in EU institutions.
