‌NUI Galway recognises the critical role Guidance Counsellors play in supporting school leavers and other students to progress to third level studies. We acknowledge that the reality of Covid 19 means the next year will be very challenging for you and your students and we are committed to supporting you to navigate these strange times by being flexible, supportive and proactive. 

The Student Recruitment and Outreach team aims to provide clear, accurate and up-to-date information to Guidance Counsellors, to provide an annual calendar of informative and engaging recruitment events some of which will be virtual and to deliver a high quality school liaison programme. My colleagues and I look forward to supporting you and hearing your feedback during the 2021/2022 academic year."

The NUI Galway Guidance Counsellors monthly NEWSLETTER

We know that the next few months are going to be very challenging for us all.  We acknowledge the need to develop new ways of working together to ensure students can access the information they need in order to be able to make an informed decision about the next steps in their academic journey.

The newsletter will have all up to date and relevant information on events, virtual and on campus, including open days, school talks, campus tours, mini campus talks, new courses, and so much more. I would encourage any Guidance Counsellor who is not on our email list to register here now to ensure they receive this monthly newsletter.‌
