Who Are We?
Welcome to NUI Galway’s Adult and Continuing Education programmes. On our website, you will find all the advice and information you need on studying at NUI Galway. We offer an extensive range of part-time programmes, including Access and Foundation courses, as well as certificate, diploma, degree and masters’ awards. So whether you want to enhance your career prospects or simply study for your own enjoyment and pleasure, we have a programme to suit you.
Many of our programmes are offered through classroom-based teaching at the NUI Galway campus and in a number of outreach locations within the Border, Midlands and Western (BMW) Region. An increasing number of programmes are also offered online or through a blended learning format, requiring class attendance on a monthly basis. This ensures flexibility for learners and access to a wide selection of courses.
All our tutors are experienced educators and have a particular interest in working with adult learners. A range of specialist support services are also offered, which assist students as they progress through their chosen programme. These supports coupled with the assistance of your lecturers and staff of the Adult & Continuing Education Office aim to help you through your study programme.
