News and Events

A free professional headshot plus the chance to listen to a careers and interview expert speak – two additions to Belfast Met’s Part Time Open Day that make it a not to be missed event for those looking to take on a new course, find a new job, upskill or retrain.


Come along to the college’s Part Time Open Day between 1pm and 8pm on June 8 at the flagship Titanic Quarter campus.

The event will offer the opportunity to chat to tutors about courses ranging from level 0 right up to degree, liaise with careers advisors about the best study paths and the chance to apply and enrol.

Guests can also avail of a free professional headshot for their LinkedIn profile or CV and take in a seminar from entrepreneur and business leader Linzi Conway.

Linzi said: “Whether you're job hunting, climbing the corporate ladder or wanting to start your own business, then this seminar is for you. It is time to become #careersocial. You will never hunt for a new job in the same way again. We will be discussing: social networking and online reputation for employability, creating a personal brand and working your network, the Gold Standard of CVs and Being a STAR at Interview. It is time to invest in yourself by attending.”

Belfast Met’s Director of Curriculum, Dr Jonathan Heggarty, said: “This year we are delighted to offer an even wider choice of part-time courses across all academic levels, including our Foundation Degree in Software Engineering and our HND in Sports Science. All of our courses offer and opportunity for people wanting to upskill or indeed gain new knowledge and skills. In addition, we have flexible and cost-effective online “blended learning” courses, which facilitates students studying for a qualification in a way that best suits them. Examples include our CIM Level 4 Award in Digital Marketing and our BA in Professional Development in Leadership and Management.

“Our professional courses are designed to meet the needs of the local economy as well as further afield, so if you are planning to reskill, up-skill or are learning for leisure, feel confident that your time is well spent contributing your talents towards industry lead skills.”
