What Our Students Say


Richa Krishna |   MSc student, Cellular Manufacturing & Therapy

Hailing from a clinical background and being aware of its current traditional therapy limitations, I opted for Cellular Manufacturing & Therapy to explore the future of advanced cell therapy. This field has a lot of potential due to current clinical trials and research advances. This course gave me an opportunity to gain knowledge of the state of the art of the cellular therapies transitioning into the health care systems around the globe. If this area interests you, NUIG would lend you a perfect platform from where you can shape your career in the research field or industry. Needless to add Galway is very friendly place for international students with support to help along your academic journey.

Mark O’Donovan |   Olympic rower, world champion and NUIG Sports scholar

I choose to do this Masters, in Exercise Physiology and its application in therapy, as I was interested in continuing my work and study in the area of sport. I have a masters in Sports Performance and I wanted to expand on this knowledge and explore the therapy and clinical side of sports. This Masters is both full time and distance learning, I am doing the distance learning option as it allows me to complete my training program in the National Rowing Centre in Cork, while also keeping up with the course through online lectures and learning materials which I am able to work through in my own time. The knowledge I am getting from the course has complimented my training too as I am getting an understanding of physiology which I can then translate more practically into my training. Even though I am a distance learning student I have an open invitation to come to NUI Galway to attend any of the classes in person, which is a great option to have if you want to meet some of your fellow students and the lecturers in person. There is a good interaction between the students and the lecturers when needed, either in person or via discussion boards or email.

Aditya Kodumagulla |   Pharm D

MSc. in Clinical Research program have equipped me with good Clinical and essential skills that are most needed if you are willing to start a clinical research industry career. The compulsory and optional modules are designed to complete with great flexibility and provide the basic concept with adequate staff support. My journey to Ireland started with my interest in clinical trials and Medical devices to explore good research career opportunities. However, I was fortunate enough to receive the HRB - Fellowship, which has exposed me to many practical aspects and various clinical and non-clinical pieces of training, that have helped me gain essential skills. Moreover, my student life at NUIG was amazingly packed in attending social, sports and career events which gave me enough exposure, confidence and skill to unleash my potential and supported me to create excellent research possibilities for my upcoming career.
