Program Description:
Galway, with a population of 62,000, is the ideal European university town.  A significant number of Galway’s population is made up of current or former college students; the resulting interdependence of town and gown has helped build a compact, thriving city that caters to young people. Galway has been enjoying an economic boom in recent times; yet, it still retains a powerful and intimate sense of community. For nearly a thousand years, Galway has been the largest and most important city in the west of Ireland. As the capital of Connemara – the outcropping of land between Lough Corrib and the Atlantic Ocean – Galway is at the heart of one of the world’s most scenic and evocative landscapes. Cultural richness is reflected by the strong academic programs in Irish Studies offered by the University, and by the lively arts scene for which Galway is renowned.

The National University of Ireland, Galway was established in 1845 and is located in the fourth largest city in the Republic of Ireland. The school, situated on the banks of the River Corrib, offers a variety of student services that are all close to Galway's city center. NUI Galway is one of Ireland's foremost centers of academic excellence. With over 15,000 students, it has a long established reputation of teaching and research excellence in each of its seven faculties - Arts, Science, Commerce, Engineering, Celtic Studies, Medicine & Health Sciences, and Law.

NUI Galway also offers a fee-based summer study abroad program. Click here for more information. Program topics offered over the summer include archaeology, geology, ecology, education, and Irish studies.
