"I like how my programme balances both the theory and the practical and I’ve found the teaching staff to be friendly and helpful and always available for questions or to meet them in their office time. The New Engineering Building is a fantastic facility especially for me.

Galway is a nice place to live in. The people here are very friendly and everything is nearby you which makes life simpler."
