What learner support services can I avail of?
NUI Galway has a wide range of student support services which are available to Adult Learning and Professional Development students. It is important for students returning to education or for those who have been out of education for some time to avail of these services to enable them to make the most of their time as students in NUI Galway. Some of the support services offered to students returning to education include additional study, examination techniques, applied writing, reading skills and memory technique workshops. These are provided outside regular class hours and assist students in preparing for end of semester examination. While these workshops are optional, students are encouraged to attend as many as possible, particularly during the first year of their study programme. Students who attend these workshops regularly comment on how useful the workshops are, particularly in providing valuable study tips and techniques.
