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 QQI, HEA 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.
Also available in degree stream MH101 PPE - Philosophy, Poliitics and Economics: students study all three subjects for three years.
Philosophy requires us to reflect upon our own ideas about the world. In asking us to critically examine our own ideas and to weed out of our own prejudices and inconsistencies, philosophy should give us respect for the ideas of others, and to appreciate the different ways in which other people look at the world.
In this programme you will receive an excellent overview in philosophy through the Introduction to Philosophy as well as an excellent grounding in core philosophy subjects such as Ethics, Political Philosophy or Ancient Philosophy, while also retaining the flexibility to customise your own academic path.

The expertise gained in Philosophy is of great value in many different careers. Philosophy is a good preparation for an academic career, for journalism, law, radio and television and the media in general, for politics and public service, and increasingly, philosophy graduates are being hired by large corporations.
Philosophy graduates are valued for their quick intelligence, and their ability to take an overview on the problem or situation confronting them and, most importantly, their ability to reason clearly and independently and to ‘think outside the box’.
