"Studying Corporate Law at NUI Galway allowed me to combine many of my interests and learn a range of skills that I hope to use in later life. It offers the chance to study both legal and business subjects while allowing students to focus on the areas that really interest them. Lecturers here are of a very high standard and are keen to ensure that their students develop and get to grips with the material being studied. I would be happy to recommend NUI Galway to anybody considering their options for third level. It has offered me the perfect opportunity to learn through dedicated teaching, engaging course content and a friendly atmosphere that helped me benefit from the collective experiences of my fellow students."
