Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.
We asked Sinead Kenny from Smart Futures to give some advice for people considering this job:
|If it is possible to get some work experience during the summer holidays or weekends, it would be great. Find out if there are any positions (voluntary or otherwise) available in your local IT or University. Get involved in a hobby such as model making, this would be very helpful as it would help with dexterity & impart an understanding of the ways in which different materials interact when assembled together.|

Undergraduate awards typically reflect three to five years of study after secondary school and include Ordinary (Level 7) and Honours Bachelor Degrees and Higher Diplomas (Level 8's).
Undergraduate awards may be achieved directly or through a series of progression steps. Learners may choose to progress upwards from a Level 5 to a Level 6, Level 7 and finally a Level 8.
Undergraduate awards are awarded by the HETAC or Higher Education Institutes.
3rd level Graduates are qualified for a wide range of occupations, and their education prepares them for roles involving specific skills, and for coordinating, supervising, managing, or training others. Examples include accountants, sales managers, computer programmers, teachers, chemists, environmental engineers, criminal investigators, and financial analysts.
In this programme you will study core subjects such as contract, criminal, and constitutional law, while having the option to continue with your legal study by transferring to the LLB or BCL programmes in second year.
Many modules on the programmes are run in partnership with leading law firms and civil society organisations and the Department has a strong career focus.
The study of Law develops your facility for argument and reasoning, for clear thinking and for the analysis of complicated ideas. You will also gain the ability to express complex issues clearly in oral and written forms. Knowledge of Law is also a useful complement to other areas of study, giving an added insight into economics, history and politics, among other areas.
