Global Public Health and Sports Studies Summer School, 19-30 June (Informational webinar 22 Feb)
Author: School of Public Health, Physiotherapy and Sports Science
The Summer School will appeal to undergraduate students interested in global public health and/or sports and health-related areas. It will consist of two modules, "Sustainable Advancements in Global Public Health" and "Sports Studies", and students are welcome to choose either one or both of them.
Via a series of lectures, innovative practical workshops and interactive group learning activities, students will be guided through the most recent research and teachings from a global health and sports and performance perspective, delivered by a team of world-class researchers, teachers and clinical experts.
In addition to learning activities, students will be given the opportunity to try out Gaelic games, take a stadium tour of Croke Park (Ireland's largest sporting arena) and browse in the Gaelic Athletics Association (GAA) museum. They will learn about sustainable food practices at Airfield Estate, Dublin's only urban working farm and gardens and they will visit Glendalough, the beautiful 'valley of the two lakes' and home to one of the most important monastic sites in Ireland.
The cost per module is €1,500 which includes tuition, social and cultural events. Accommodation is available on-campus on a first come, first served basis for an additional cost.
The deadline for applications is 31 March 2023 and we are accepting applications now at www.ucd.ie/apply.
We are hosting a Zoom webinar on Wednesday 22 February 2023 at 7pm GMT where the Dean and Head of School, Professor Catherine Blake and Summer School Directors, Dr Cliona O'Sullivan and Dr Conor Buggy, will present information about the Summer School and will answer any questions that attendees may have.
