Student Services

What student support services can I avail of?

NUI Galway has a wide range of student support services 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. Some of the support services include workshops on additional study, examination techniques, applied writing, reading skills and memory techniques. These are provided outside regular class hours and assist students in preparing for end-of-semester examinations. 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 they are, particularly in providing valuable study tips and techniques.    

NUI Galway personnel, tutors and course administrators also provide a high level of support to students throughout the programme. Students are encouraged to create their own informal support groups and networks with other students. As a student of NUI Galway, you have access to the on-campus services available to all students.
