NUI Galway and China
Check out testimonials from our staff and students
NUI Galway has a strong tradition of links with China and has welcomed Chinese students to study in Ireland for over 30 years. As an academic community, we value the contribution Chinese students and academics have made to intellectual and cultural life of the University and are committed to further strengthening our educational links with China over the coming years.
The growing network of NUI Galway graduates in China plays an important role in reinforcing our research links with some of China’s leading universities, including Tsinghua University, Beijing Institute of Technology and Harbin Institute of Technology. NUI Galway has academic exchange and collaborations with 30 institutions throughout China and Hong Kong and our strong ties with Chinese universities greatly benefit research collaborations, as well as student and academic exchanges.
