Welcome to NUI Galway's University of Sanctuary Initiative

The University of Sanctuary initiative at NUI Galway aims to increase public awareness on international protection, migration and nomadism, in an effort to address the low levels of participation of underrepresented groups in third-level education. International protection applicants, refugees, vulnerable immigrant groups and Irish Travellers are too frequently excluded from participation in education due to inequitable societal barriers, and we feel that through our actions as a designated University of Sanctuary we can make Galway's community a much more inclusive and equitable space for all.
