|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.
