Mature students can apply through the CAO and disclose a disability or specific learning difficulty as part of the CAO application. 

The DSS would encourage mature students to disclose their disability, as this is the first step to receiving a variety of academic supports that may help you reach your full potential while studying at NUI Galway.

For more information on applying to NUI Galway as a mature student please visit the Mature Student Office website.
