Courses available

Visiting Erasmus students should choose courses from those listed in our Visiting Student Academic Information Booklets (Handbooks), staying within the subject area defined by their universities' Erasmus agreements with NUI Galway.  There are two such booklets each year, the first one showing Full Year and Semester1 courses and the other listing Semester 2 courses.  The Visiting Student Handbook 2022/23 is attached to assist you with your Learning Agreement.

Students coming to NUI Galway on designated Law Exchanges will also be able to choose courses from the Law School's Visiting Student Guide.  But please note that this only applies to students whose main subject is Law and who have been nominated by our Erasmus partners in this subject area.

You should note that Learning Agreements cannot be approved definitively until the most up-to-date listings are published for a particular year/semester.  Signatures on Learning Agreements before this denote approval in principle only, and the University cannot be held responsible for any discrepancy between previously-signed Learning Agreements and the actual availability of courses when students arrive here in September (or in January, as the case may be). 

Please bear in mind too, that while a seminar course may be provisionally approved on your learning agreement, this is not a guarantee that you will be admitted to this course: in some cases, there may be a limit on the number of students that can register for a particular seminar course, and you may have to consult with the relevant Disciplines early in the semester.  You will find out more at the Academic Orientation session at the beginning of the semester.

Please note that some subject areas may have prerequisites, and that Erasmus students who wish to be admitted into courses in Science, Engineering and Medicine will have to send transcripts with their applications: Such applications will be passed to the relevant College (faculty) for approval.  

You will not be able to take any courses other than the ones listed in the above-mentioned Handbook(s), and you should not attempt to make any special arrangements with lecturers in this regard, because you will be unable to register for courses not in the Handbook(s), sit exams in them, or gain any formal recognition for them.
