What is the Access Programmes approach?

In providing for students who for a variety of financial or social reasons are unable to access third level education, the University sees provision of Access [granting direct Access by targeted groups] as a key approach to equipping all non-traditional students for entry to third-level studies. The activities managed by the Access Office include Access Courses for School-Leavers and Mature Students and UNI 4U and University Trail. 

These approaches enable the University to target effectively the most disadvantaged in the region, to work with all schools, to offer educationally sound preparation for entry into our own University programmes and to remain conscious of the sensitive to special concerns of rural and gaeltacht community.  NUI Galway Access Programmes are devised to advance the social, economic, educational and cultural needs of the Border, Midland and Western Region and County Clare.
