Online Single-Subject Courses

Galway Academy has created single-subject online courses which are designed to educate students about a variety of topics that could help to enhance their careers and/or which may be of interest to them.

These short self-guided distance learning courses can be beneficial for anyone, but may be of particular interest to individuals who want to learn about a certain subject, but they don’t want to spend an entire semester to gain the knowledge.
