Introduction

NUI Galway recognises the incredible importance of student collaboration and of looking out for one another. University should be a time when you realise how many likeminded people there are out there – and that you are never alone in the way you feel, whether that be a fear of the future, or of a love of art, music, sports, or anything in between. From Volunteering, Societies and Clubs to collaborative learning and peer support, NUI Galway aims to ensure that students always feel part of a welcoming community that promotes collaboration, mutual respect and support.


ALIVE – NUI Galway’s Student Volunteering Programme - Volunteer in a wealth of different and exciting ways both within the campus and beyond, as part of schools, charities, community organisations and events.
