" Feedback on assignments is severely lacking, and it is hard to improve when no feedback is given. Student services are fantastic, but the academic staff need to prioritize their students over other commitments, not the other way around. "

" I‘m very happy at NUI Galway. I like the campus and I‘m really pleased with my modules and lectureres. I think that NUI Galway has a better variety of modules than my home university. Campus living is quite expensive though. "

" Very good campus. The only complaint I have is with the campus accommodation and that the sign in option for friends and relatives is unreliable at the best of times. Housing is more than spacious enough with the beds being comfortable. Again the main complaint is about the convenience of signing others in from outside the college. "
