NUI Galway and India

NUI Galway currently hosts a vibrant community of Indian students, mainly studying at Postgraduate level in all areas of the curriculum. 

NUI Galway-India research relations have been further strengthened by the signing of agreements between the Network of Excellence for Functional Biomaterials (NFB) at NUI Galway and four Indian institutions:
- The Materials Research Centre at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore
- Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur
- Indian Institute of Technology, New Delhi
- Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute of Medical Science and Technology, Trivandrum

Warning message - Phishing telephone calls

Dear All,
The Embassy of India would like to inform Indian students in Ireland about the incidents where Indian citizens are being targeted and threatened by persons posing to be an officer either from the Immigration Department or from the Embassy of India. The fraudsters demand immediate payment of money or face the consequence of deportation if they did not cooperate.  The number displayed on the phone was invariably that of the Embassy of India in Dublin or the Irish Immigration Office apparently designed to convince the victims that the caller was indeed acting in official capacity. Few complaints relating to these incidents have been lodged with local Garda and the matter has also been reported to the Embassy.

The Embassy has taken up the matter at appropriate level and following it with the local immigration authorities and Garda. An advisory has been displayed on Embassy website and also on INIS website  (Notice to INIS Customers | Possible Fraud).

The Embassy would appreciate if this information is circulated among Indian students in the institutions, advising them to take precaution while answering such calls. Such incidents should be reported to the Garda immediately and intimated to the Embassy.

Kind Regards,
Benjamin Besra
(First Secretary)
Embassy of India, Dublin

Vinod Hegde

I have recently defended my PhD thesis at Insight Centre for Data Analytics, NUI Galway.
Some of the highlights of my career as a PhD student at NUI Galway are as follows;

1. Published papers in highly reputable conferences
2. NUIG support in applying for a patent as primary inventor
3. Secured Enterprise Ireland commercialization fund of ~ €170,000 as a sole PI applicant 
4. Worked in Intel labs as consultant data scientist and was on interview panels as decision maker for senior posts
5. Have multiple open offers to apply for positions from companies such as Apple, Intel, Amazon, Deloitte, HP, Accenture etc.
6. In the process of spinning off a company in October 2016 in the area of advanced data analytics

These are all the results of my engagement with Insight from the past few years as a PhD student.

These have been possible due to the excellent research facilities, faculty and support at NUI Galway.
I especially want to thank Technology Transfer Office (TTO) at NUI Galway for their support.

Janvi Shah - MSc in International Management

Janvi Shah

"My decision to come to Ireland and getting admission at NUIG has been a total game changer and is proving too fruitful. I pursued Masters (International Management) from 2014-2015. My course had won the Best Postgraduate Award in the year 2013 which was also one of the main reasons for me to apply for this course. I received a Postgraduate Merit scholarship which waived a substantial amount from my course fee. Throughout the application process as well as after getting an offer, I made a point of keeping in touch with the International Affairs Officers and my Programme Director. All the NUIG staff are very kind to help and answer all your queries to make your transition to Ireland very smooth.

My course was a good mix of Management subjects including Human Resource Management, Corporate Social Responsibility and Business Ethics, Irish Economics, International Finance to name a few. Through my course, I was lucky to visit Hong Kong for an International Business trip as part of my Thesis. I also participated in the International Ambassador Programme and eventually became the International Student Ambassador representing India here in Ireland.Galway is a beautiful and a safest city filled with young and vibrant community of people. "

Alumni Janvi Shah’s Recommendations for International Students

"I would suggest to all the prospective students to research well about their course, employment options and  having discussion with the past students. If any doubt there is help available always through contacting the International Affairs Office regarding accommodation, post arrival checklist such as opening bank account, doing your visa/re-entry visa etc. which is reflected well on the University’s website. Past students such as me are also there to help you all at all stages.

One last thing I would suggest to all the students to attend the Workshops held by the Career Development Centre. I attended most of the workshops including writing CVs, Interview tips, company workshops, career events to name a few which helped me understand and gave an idea regarding how the Irish job market works and what they essentially look for in a candidate. Do participate in events, societies, Ambassador programme etc. but keeping a very good balance with your studies. "

Ameya C. Jagtap, Regenerative Medicine

Ameya C. Jagtap

"As a Medical Doctor training in internal medicine - I wanted to be involved in translational research. The MSc Regenerative Medicine program provided a perfect platform towards my aim of becoming a clinician-scientist. The Regenerative Medicine Institute (REMEDI) is an apex institution spearheading research in this novel and dynamic branch of medicine with the programme delivered by world leading clinicians and scientists. With its excellent medical and industry links, I see it as the ideal place to translate research into practical relevance (bench to bedside approach), which I believe should be the ultimate goal of science. With on campus avenues like the Network of Excellence for Functional Biomaterials and the Business Incubation/Innovation Centre NUI, Galway provides excellent opportunities for the same. The Republic of Ireland also has a distinct advantage of being a pharmaceutical hub, leading the world in research and development of newer drugs and treatment modalities. Galway is a wonderful city to live in, known as the cultural heart of Ireland. With its thriving arts scene, many festivals and friendly people around, it is, as its said around here - ‘mighty craic’."

"I consider it as a great opportunity to have graduated from NUI Galway with a Master’s degree in Regenerative Medicine. The Government of Ireland (GOI) Scholarship awarded to Indian students at the Postgraduate level was a real boost to me. The reason I chose Regenerative Medicine was mainly due to the therapeutic potential of this field and also the vast opportunities provided to students aiming at a career in industry and research by the Regenerative Medicine Institute (REMEDI) at NUI Galway. The structure and methodology of teaching at REMEDI, ensures that students can carry out any scientific work of complex nature, with great confidence. I feel elated to have benefited from this course by further securing an admission to pursue a structured PhD specialising in the field of Orthobiology in REMEDI, via the Hardiman Scholarship awarded by NUI Galway. My work aims at finding strategies for modulating the inflammatory environment in an osteoarthritic joint using the anti-inflammatory cytokine, viral interleukin-10, as a potential gene therapeutic target. It is very exciting to do PhD in a scientifically motivating and student-friendly research facility. I feel proud to be a part of REMEDI and NUI Galway."
