China

The University has a strong tradition of links with China and has welcomed Chinese students to study in Ireland for over 30 years. As an academic community, we value the contribution Chinese students and academics have made to intellectual and cultural life of the University and is committed to further strengthening our educational links with China over the coming years.

 

The growing network of NUI Galway graduates in China plays an important role in reinforcing our research links with some of China’s leading universities, including Tsinghua University, Beijing Institute of Technology and Harbin Institute of Technology.

Guo Jia, Graduate Student, China

 Guo Jia ‌I was fortunate enough to receive the Joint-Governmental Scholarship from China and Ireland and to find the unique course in Landscape Archaeology at NUI Galway. The excellent standard of education in the MA Landscape Archaeology provides advanced archaeological theoretical research methodology and academic practice.

 

The professional and competent approach to teaching directs me in my understanding of the archaeology and anthropology of both western and eastern cultures. The development of deep understanding of Landscape Archaeology will promote cultural acceptance among divergent ethnic populations in China, and point to ways in which we can protect our shared cultural heritage in its landscape setting.

 

NUI Galway offers an international and positive atmosphere in a beautiful environment, the staff at all levels fulfil their responsibilities to each student. The city of Galway is such a nice place with a rich historical and cultural atmosphere. The study and life here will provide the chances to discover the splendours of the natural landscape, and to experience the authentic Irish culture.

 

— Guo Jia

Jia Wang, PhD Student, China

 Jia Wang The first thing that attracted me to NUI Galway was the great reputation of the Irish Centre for Human Rights, the only centre of its kind in the world. Human Rights Law is a hugely important area both in terms of international law and international relations. I chose to study this subject in order to help improve human rights and promote the humanitarian concerns in the official and civil life in China.

 

With its excellent facilities and professional and international environment, NUI Galway is the perfect place to do this. NUI Galway is a lovely place with lovely people. I would certainly recommend NUI Galway and Ireland to other international students. Galway boasts a great combination of people, culture and literature, not to mention Irish music!
