What is a conversion course and why do it?

ucc conversion-small

Conversion courses offer students the opportunity to take up a postgraduate qualification in an area where they do not have previous experience. Taking a conversion course allows students to change direction from their undergraduate degree.

If you have just finished a course but strongly feel like changing direction, or if you have an undergraduate degree and a few years work experience but know you would like to get into a different area, then a conversion course might be the right option for you.

Why take a postgraduate conversion course?

– Change study direction.

– Change career path.

– Study a subject that you have no previous experience in, but have always wanted to study.

– Enhance your job prospects.
