Program Description:
As a Visiting Student at NUI Galway, you can create your own individual study programme from the wide range of classes (modules) available from our regular degree courses, to meet your own major or minor requirements, subject to meeting the normal prerequisites.

Visiting Students can study at NUI Galway for a semester or a full academic year.

You can expect to take 5 - 7 classes (modules) per semester. This equates to approximately 30 ECTS credits, which is a normal course load for NUI Galway students per semester. Classes are generally delivered through lectures, which are normally held in large or medium sized lecture halls and which provide the foundations on which students are expected to explore further through independent reading.

Lectures are also usually supplemented by smaller tutorials or seminar classes, which provide an opportunity for discussion in a smaller group setting. Visiting students are also examined alongside our full time degree-seeking students. Most classes are examined by end of semester examination, however most also include mid-term assignments and/or continuous assessment.
