Study Abroad During Your NUI Galway Science Degree
We encourage all Science students to consider participating in one of our international exchange opportunities.
Most students take part in exchanges during the 3rd year of their degree. Candidates for exchanges are usually expected to have at least an upper 2.1 honours average in years 1-2 and have experience of living independently.
Selection for exchange schemes usually takes place in early semester 2 of the year preceding departure (semester 2 of 2nd year). Information on how to apply is posted on this page when applications are open.”
The College of Science has Erasmus exchange agreements with a number of partner universities. This enables selected students to spend 1-2 semesters hosted at the partner university. A strong record of academic achievement at NUI Galway and appropriate language skills are required.
If you wish to discuss opportunities for Erasmus, please contact the relevant coordinator listed via the International Office Erasmus Coordinators page during semester 2 of the year preceding when you wish to go away.
Certain programmes such as Biotechnology maintain Erasmus agreements enabling internships. These are usually restricted and notified directly to students within the relevant programmes.
