National University of Ireland Galway

Program Overview

A globally focused, research-led university, National University of Ireland Galway (NUI Galway) was established in 1845 and its iconic quadrangle building welcomed students four years later. Today it is home to 18,000 students, 4,000 of which are international,  from 110 countries. 

You’ll be able to choose from the University's extensive variety of course offerings in the humanities, sciences, business, engineering and law. To make the most out of the study abroad experience, many students take advantage of courses in Irish history, language and culture.

Special Academic Opportunities: NUI Galway offers both a service learning option for study abroad students, as well a practice-based learning of indigenous Irish music, song and dance.

Galway is distinguished in the med-tech field with numerous industry leaders based in the city, and NUI Galway features a Biomedical Science building that supports the research of over 300 scientists working in areas including  regenerative medicine, stem cell research, cancer biology, and biomaterials. Research priorities in other disciplinary areas have included nanotechnology, Celtic civilization, human settlement and historical change, and integrated digital enterprises, amongst many others. 

The campus is located just fifteen minutes from the center of Galway. The city is the most international in Ireland, and is also known as Ireland’s cultural capital. It’s situated in the unique landscape and cultural frame of the west of Ireland. 

While all instruction is officially in English, NUI Galway maintains a strong commitment to Irish language which is spoken both on campus and in the surrounding area.  The city is home to numerous cultural amenities and a lively sense of history and culture. 

Campus life features 160 clubs and societies, sporting facilities (including a swimming pool), and an active Students’ Union, which hosts a full calendar of events.
