Library Access

Due to reduced staff numbers on site, the introduction of various new services to offset the challenges posed by COVID-19, and the significant reduction in capacity of library facilities due to social distancing, we are not in a position to admit alumni or external readers at this time.

Access to the library’s collections is being facilitated via a Click and Collect service, which is open to current registered members of the Library including alumni with existing borrowing rights. Those who do not have borrowing rights can apply now for a fee. Please contact and a team member will liaise with you on this.

Career and Mentoring

The Career Development Centre provides NUI Galway students with a quality career guidance and information service focused on facilitating and empowering the student to manage their own career development and make effective career transitions. 

Students and recent graduates can use Careers Connect to view upcoming events and job / internship / funding opportunities.‌

Exam Transcripts

The Student Registry Helpdesk is your point of call for ordering transcripts. There is a  10 working day processing period for standard transcripts and a  five week processing period for archive transcripts  (pre 1986)  There will be times that  this process time will be extended due to huge numbers of Transcript Requests as this is required by the service to deal with all requests.  Under the Data Protection Act Transcript Request Forms must be signed by the student whose results are being requested .  

Under the Data Protection Act we cannot discuss the student's results with anyone other than the student themselves 

Transcript Fees

1 year results €4          (2 copies)

2 years results €8       (2 copies)

Complete set of results €10   (2 copies)

Contact the Student Registry Helpdesk for further details.
