Orientation 2022

Welcome to NUI Galway

Cead Mile Failte (Welcome)

NUI Galway would like to extend a warm welcome to all our new international students. We are very happy to have you join our university community and we are working hard to ensure the experience is everything you hoped it would be. 

Orientation for all international students will take place on Friday 2 September in the Bailey Allen Hall (see map), starting at 9:30 am.  

We strongly recommend that you attend this session as you will be given important information on all the supports and activities available to you such as Clubs, Societies, Library & IT, Health services, Immigration registration, Active Consent and much more.  

It is also a great opportunity to meet all the other new students from around the world, have some fun and get your hands on some spot prizes!   

Check out our welcome events page for more information. 

Be sure to join our Facebook Group for International Students to connect with your peers.

Contact the NUI Galway International Office and our team would be delighted to provide you with support
