Uni 4 U 

The Uni 4 U programme, led by the Access Centre at University of Galway, offers exciting experiences to over 200 6th class students from 5 DEIS and Link primary schools in Galway City.

Students and their teachers visit the campus once a week for six weeks to engage in workshops with various university departments and schools. This year, students will explore Irish Language and Culture, Cell Explorers Science Club, Economics, Engineering, a Moot Court with the School of Law, the Computer Museum, broadcasting with Flirt FM, Storytelling, Italian Language and Culture with the Italian Department, Brain Awareness Week exhibitions and workshops with the Galway International Arts Festival, the Career Development Centre and Ideas Lab.

Students will also partake in activities with their assigned mentors, including Campus Tours, a University Quiz, and games. They will conclude their day by having lunch together in the campus canteen, surrounded by other university students, experiencing the vibrant atmosphere of campus life.

The programme aims to foster personal development by enhancing self-esteem, confidence, communication skills, and social behaviour through team-building activities and workshops, alongside educational enrichment, particularly in core subjects.

At the end of the Uni 4 U Programme, all participating pupils' achievements are honoured in a special Graduation ceremony held in the Bailey Allen Hall where a special guest presents the students with their certificates.

Additionally, the Uni 4 U programme offers a Summer Camp at University of Galway. This year, our students participated in workshops conducted by Cell Explorers, Kitchen Chemistry, and Flirt FM. Furthermore, there was a collaboration with the Galway Sports Partnership, which included a workshop conducted by Tennis Ireland for the students.
