QA252 New Entrants to First Year Fulltime Undergraduate Degree Programmes

New Entrant students wishing to transfer to another First Year Undergraduate programme


New entrants to First Year Full-time Undergraduate programmes in the University may, subsequent to registration, apply to transfer to another First Year Fulltime Undergraduate programmes in the University for which they are eligible. Such transfer requests will only be considered if there are available places on the programme to which the student wishes to transfer.

Students should be aware that transferring between first year programmes after the start of term may impact adversely on their academic performance, depending on how much of the academic year they miss. Transfers are permitted strictly on the basis that students fully accept any such possible academic disadvantage.

Students should also accept that where subjects/modules on the programme, to which s/he wishes to transfer, have restrictions on the number of places available (e.g. Information Technology in First Arts) and that quota has been reached, the transferee must choose from alternative modules.

Eligibility

Transfer applications must be received by the Admissions Office not later than 5:00pm on 30th September. The transfer applicant must:

• meet the matriculation and specific programme requirements for admission onto the programme to which s/he wishes to transfer;

• have the points required for entry for the programme to which s/he wishes to transfer

N.B. This application process is for 1st year students only . If you have already completed a year or more at NUI Galway and wish to apply to 1st year, please see below.
