Information Sessions on the Access Course Programmes for Higher Education at NUI Galway

Apr 12 2018 Posted: 11:33 IST

NUI Galway will shortly be recruiting for its Access Course for 2018/19 for young adults and mature students who have potential for third level but whom, for various reasons, may not achieve the necessary Leaving Certificate results for entry to NUI Galway. The successful applicant would be someone who, despite unemployment or lack of formal education, sees a third level qualification as a way to improve their skills and advance their career.

The programme is specifically designed for young adults and mature students who have a real desire to study at third-level but whose education and economic circumstances may have prevented them from achieving this goal. 

This programme is also suitable for students with disabilities, whose education has been affected by long-term absence. The main aim of the course is to bring the students to a stage where they can successfully enter a third level institution and on entry, can fully participate and benefit from the time they spend as a student.

Two Information sessions will run on Tuesday, 17 April at the following locations:

  • The Glasshouse Hotel, Sligo between 2-4pm
  • Room IT 250, IT Building, NUI Galway between 6-8pm

If you are interested in the NUI Galway Access Course and wish to attend our Information Session, please register at

Online applications for Access Courses will be accepted until Friday, 27 April, 2018.
