Undergraduate study at NUI Galway is based on research-led teaching. With over 50 individual programmes across sixteen schools, we offer an extensive choice of both broad-based programmes, that allow you the opportunity to study a range of subjects, as well as more specialised programmes, aligned to professional qualifications or the University’s particular areas of research expertise.
There are two types of Master’s degrees on offer at NUI Galway – Taught Master’s and Research-based Master’s.
Taught Master’s programmes usually take 1 or 2 years to complete and consist mainly of classes, seminars and coursework, as well as minor research project and dissertation. Taught Masters are designed to enable graduate students gain specialised skills and knowledge in a particular area of study.
