|About the University|
With over 17,000 students and more than 2,400 staff, NUI Galway has a distinguished reputation for teaching and research excellence.
NUI Galway has earned national and international recognition as a research-led university with a commitment to top-quality teaching.
Our campus is in the middle of a €400 million expansion programme. With over 90 buildings on 105 hectares of land, the University is right in the heart of Galway city.
|How We're Unique|
At NUI Galway, we have a strong commitment to the Irish language. Volunteering and community outreach also play a strong role in academic life.
|The Irish Language|
The language has a unique position in the University, predominantly due to its proximity to the Connemara Gaeltacht - one of several Irish-speaking regions in Ireland.
From Queen's College to National University of Ireland, the University's past is intertwined with the history of Galway and Ireland.
