Our Reputation
 

NUI Galway has earned national and international recognition as a research-led university with a commitment to top-quality teaching.‌

Our Campus

Our campus is in the middle of a €400 million expansion programme. With over 90 buildings on 105 hectares of land, the University is right in the heart of Galway city.

‌‌
How We're Unique

At NUI Galway, we have a strong commitment to the Irish language. Volunteering and community outreach also play a strong role in academic life.

The Irish Language

The language has a unique position in the University, predominantly due to its proximity to the Connemara Gaeltacht - one of several Irish-speaking regions in Ireland.

Our History

From Queen's College to National University of Ireland, the University's past is intertwined with the history of Galway and Ireland.‌‌‌
