" 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. "

" Very good university overall, very friendly and lots to do. A good place for everyone to study. Lack of parking is an issue. Really good sports facilities too. "

" The prices for student accommodation are ridiculous especially for what u get like it can be so cold and moldy yet we pay out thousands for it and it’s impossible to find a house which is actually affordable. If I had to give advice to future students id recommend finding accommodation early and buy food in cheaper shops such as aldi. Maybe refrain from buying too much on campus as it can be very dear. "
