Study Abroad in Science

Our popular Study Abroad Programme offers students the opportunity to study at NUI Galway and earn credits towards their degree at their home institution. Visiting students can tailor their selection of classes from across our wide range of disciplines to their individual academic requirements.

As a visiting student, you can attend NUI Galway for one semester (Fall or Spring) or a full academic year. Visiting students can take up to five or six classes per semester, from across a wide range of subject areas (subject to certain prerequisites), to meet their individual academic requirements.

Visiting Student do not receive a degree from NUI Galway. However, the credits you earn here can normally be transferred back to your home institution.

In Science we are now creating packages of modules to make coming to study in Galway even easier. * Marine Science and Biology Study Abroad programme
