" Societies were a particularly great part of the experience, met loads of lovely people and got to volunteer as well. Was lucky to have many supportive lecturers and tutors, enjoyed my studies thoroughly. A lot of facilities, from seating and study space to quality WiFi and accessible public sports/gym facilities, could be improved upon. Has to be said that one of if not the best thing about studying at NUIG is being based in Galway, nightlife and socialising that's hard to match in Ireland. "

" Beautiful campus. Wish I could go back! If I could give advice to students who are now attending this university I would say enjoy it while you can. Make the most of it. No matter what school you go to you will generally find similar resources. It is up to you to make the most of it. "

" Yeah I feel NUIG could seriously improve but I’m saying that I enjoyed my time studying there. I don’t think I’d do a postgraduate in NUIG but I enjoyed my time here. There should be more vegan options on campus. There needs to be more study spaces. "
