About the Program

Program Description

Choose from National University of Ireland, Galway's (NUIG) entire—and extensive—course catalog. Take courses in a range of subject areas, from business to humanities, liberal arts to sciences, mathematics to languages. Take courses to fulfill your major or graduation requirements, or choose electives in your areas of academic or professional interest. This versatile, flexible program allows you to immerse into the Irish higher education system and study alongside Irish and other international students.

Program Structure

Each semester, you'll enroll in courses that total 30 NUIG credits/18 U.S. credits. Contact hours vary by course and may be comprised of lectures, seminars, or tutorials. You may earn a total of 18 credits per semester or a total of 36 credits per academic year. Class meeting times and days per week vary by course.

You'll "pre-register" by submitting course selections and alternates to CEA before you leave for Ireland. Formal registration takes place at a registration session during the first week of the program. Courses offered through the Science, Engineering and Nursing Faculties require a significant additional fee; you'll be invoiced after formal course registration. It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.

Where You'll Study

Founded in 1845, the National University of Ireland Galway hosts 17,000 students on its central campus along the River Corrib. Attend class side-by-side with Irish and other international students for an integrated experience in western Ireland’s largest, oldest university.
