"... Being a third year student, studying Midwifery in NUI Galway, is challenging but definitely rewarding. I really like our new modern Nursing and Midwifery building; it's such a lovely environment and really conducive to learning. The clinical skills labs are really cool and so well equipped. They give a realistic insight into what it's like working in a hospital environment. I enjoy the fact that class sizes are small so you really get to know other students and the lecturers. The lecturers are so enthusiastic about their topics that it makes learning enjoyable and a lot easier! The support and teaching in the clinical setting given by experienced clinical staff is also great and sometimes you are learning things without even realising it..."
