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 .
