The University reserves the right to amend course offerings, syllabuses, course delivery methods, examinations, fees, regulations or rules or substitute modules in response to COVID-19 or to any other circumstances outside of the reasonable control of the University. The University will follow government guidelines and public health advice in this regard. Should such an event occur, we will provide you with information in as timely a manner as possible. We ask for your patience as we all continue to navigate through these unprecedented times together. For further information, please see



Please note that it is University of Galway policy to retain your full student history under your first (or old) University of Galway student ID number.
You will therefore be required to register using your first/older University of Galway student number (please do not register using your new  application number). 
There are, unfortunately, implications for your student account if you register under the wrong number; you can read these here .
