We at NUI Galway are aware that COVID-19 has had, and continues to have, a huge impact on the lives of students and we continue to adapt to our new, shared reality. Our number one priority is the safety and wellbeing of our community and this remains the priority as we plan for the 2021/22 academic year. As always, our decisions are guided by Government policy and public health recommendations.
