The priority of the education brief at the NCBES is training the future generation of research scientists through postgraduate research. In addition to supervising Postgraduate students, Centre researchers supervise final year projects for undergraduate students in science and engineering.

The centre has a major impact on education and training programmes in NUIG and offers the taught MSc in Biomedical Science which has an annual intake of 14-20 students. The Masters programme, and the incorporation of a number of modules relevant to biomedical science and biomedical engineering in undergraduate programmes, reflects the focus on, and importance of, biomedical science and engineering at NUIG.

Biomedical Seminar Series

The NCBES seminar series sees Irish and International researchers visit the Centre to share their knowledge and expertise.

The NCBES is committed to working extensively with schools and the Communications Officer, with input and support from centre researchers, works closely with the Galway Education Centre on outreach programmes at both Primary and Second level. Education and outreach to industry, policy makers and the public is central to NCBES activity to raise awareness of the impact on, and value of, biomedical research to society.
