|About the University|
With over 17,000 students and more than 2,400 staff, NUI Galway has a distinguished reputation for teaching and research excellence.
NUI Galway has earned national and international recognition as a research-led university with a commitment to top-quality teaching.
Our campus has been transformed over the past decade through our €400 million capital programme. With over 90 buildings on 105 hectares of land, the University is right in the heart of Galway city.
|How We're Unique|
From our position on the very edge of Europe, we reach out to the world, and we have the most diverse student body in Ireland. Irish language and culture, as well as volunteering and community outreach play a strong role in the student experience here.
|The Irish Language|
The language has a unique position in the University, predominantly due to its proximity to the Connemara Gaeltacht - the largest Irish-speaking region in Ireland.
From Queen's College to National University of Ireland, the University's past is intertwined with the history of Galway and Ireland.
