The Athena SWAN charter goes beyond the Institutional level, and Schools within NUI Galway are currently reviewing and preparing their own applications.

The College of Engineering and Informatics was the first school in NUI Galway to apply for departmental accreditation in April 2017.  The School of Medicine applied for and achieved departmental accreditation in April 2018, becoming the first School of Medicine to achieve the Athena SWAN Bronze award across the 7 Irish universities.
