Postgraduate School Visits
To help convey an understanding of the process of scientific enquiry we have developed an outreach module as part of our postgraduate training programme. The module, now in its second year is a recipient of a 2012 College service-learning, civic engagement award. Within it, a group of self-selecting graduates produce individual talks that explain who they are, what they do on a daily basis and the purpose of their on-going research. This has proven to be a ground-breaking and positive experience, made all the more immediate through the development by the graduates of novel, hands-on, student-centered experiments to complement their talks. Both talks and experiments are being deployed in a number of schools in the Dublin area via on-site School visits.

What are Students Saying About the Visits
“I really enjoyed the PhD experience... It was very understandable and clear, it also gave me a great understanding of where studying chemistry can take you”
