The Engineering talk for Second Level students takes a broad look at the various engineering disciplines, the core subjects for each discipline, and the main employment sectors for each type of engineer. Entry requirements to third level courses are dealt with, and we also examine the differences between studying Engineering in a University versus an Institute of Technology.
This talk is geared for Third Level Engineering students and Second Level students who have already watched the Second Level talk. In this series of videos, the four main types of engineering employer are introduced: Engineering Consultancies, Contractors, Infrastructure bodies and Manufacturing companies. We look at the day-to-day activities of Engineers in these organisations, and identify who the biggest employers are in each area in Ireland.
The Law talk focuses on the professions of Solicitor and Barrister. For Solicitors, we look at different types of law firms, the training route and the whole process of getting a training contract. For Barristers, the structure of the profession is explained and we explain why your choice of third level degree is very important if you're considering a career at the Bar. Entry requirements to third level law courses are also dealt with in detail.
This talk deals with the Medical profession and the two ways of getting into it in Ireland: direct-entry courses (i.e. directly from school) and graduate-entry courses (where an honours bachelor’s degree is required for entry). We outline the training routes for doctors from undergraduate study right through to becoming a Consultant or GP, and set out current salary levels and conditions for doctors in the HSE. We also cover entry requirements for direct-entry Medicine, and also look at the costs involved for graduate-entry medicine.
This talk deals with the three main areas for Physiotherapists - Hospital Physio, Community Physio and Private Practice & Sports. We look at what Physiotherapists get paid in the HSE and the jobs market for Physio graduates in Ireland. Third level entry requirements are dealt with in detail, and some alternative routes to the traditional degree programmes are outlined also.
