NUI Galway has risen steadily in the Rankings over the past years and is now ranked 271st by QS and ranked in the 250—275 range by THE. NUI Galway has recently been ranked in the top 200 most International Universities in the word by THE. This ‘international outlook’ acknowledges that NUI Galway continues to attract the very highest calibre of staff and students. THE look at both the diversity of a university’s student body and the extent to which its academics collaborate with international colleagues, which indicate how global an institution really is, and these factors were among the 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators that allowed Times Higher Education to produce the most comprehensive global university rankings in the world.

This ranking further cements NUI Galway’s reputation as a top destination for International Students, having recently been awarded the Excellent International Student Satisfaction Award 2015 and also ranked 2nd in Ireland for the International Student Experience 2014-2015, with Ireland being ranked number 1 in Europe.  The awards, which recognises and rewards the universities that give their international students their best study experience, are based on reviews submitted by about 17,000 international students studying across Europe, surveyed by StudyPortals, a Netherlands-based university course site
