What is the Access Programmes approach?

NUI Galway’s Access Programmes provide an opportunity for students who are generally under-represented at third level to progress to University. Access programmes are designed to provide a supportive educational environment which prepare students academically and personally for an undergraduate programme at third level. NUI Galway currently deliver a number of Access programmes for school leavers (22 or under) and mature students (23 or above) on campus in NUI Galway, as well as in our Outreach centres in St. Angela’s College, Sligo and the Ballinasloe College of Further Education.
