Survey of distance-learning Diploma in Rural Development and/or BSc Degree in Rural Development Graduates (1996-2015)

Posted on 21 Jul 2020

If you are a graduate of the distance-learning Diploma or BSc Degree in Rural Development, the National University of Ireland (NUI) wants to hear from you.

Working in partnership with NUI Galway, Maynooth University, UCC and UCD, the NUI has commissioned an independent review of these programmes. The aims of this review are:

  • to assess the outcomes of the universities’ collaborative initiative, including its impact on graduates among other stakeholders; and
  • to capture lessons learnt that may be useful for academia and policy-makers, in the context of future rural development education and related public policy development in Ireland.

A key part of the review is engagement with graduates of the programme. This will be done using a survey questionnaire and focus groups.  It should take no more that 10 minutes to complete the questionnaire. 

This can be accessed at :

The data collector will be open until about mid-September.
