All other Visiting Students, including those selecting classes in the Arts, Humanities, Business and Social Sciences etc., are given a two week period at the beginning of each semester to sample the different classes on offer before making their final selections. In addition, Visiting Students are given a further ‘drop/add’ week. Once the deadline for dropping or adding courses has passed, no further course changes are possible.

Visiting students can generally expect to gain admission to the classes listed in the handbook subject to any pre-requisites as well as individual examination or timetable limitations. Certain classes, such as seminars may also be restricted to small numbers.

The NUI Galway International Students Orientation Day, which is held at the beginning of each semester, provides comprehensive information on:

⦁ Classes on offer
⦁ Pre-requisites timetables
⦁ Venues
⦁ Examination arrangements

Once you choose your modules, get in touch with your home institution and get the approval!

Please be advised that availability of classes is not guaranteed. At EZC we recommend all of our students select more classes than they will eventually take from the university book of modules (approximately 10 classes to start with). Approve all modules with your home institution before departure as this will allow you to have flexibility in scheduling when you register for classes on-site.



Your social and residential experience abroad is just as important as your academic studies at this wonderful university. We understand that to make the most of your short time in residence it is important that you take every opportunity to meet and live with others, we will encourage you to integrate with other international and Irish students.

As an EZC Student you have the option to live in self-catering house-share accommodation operated by our sister company EazyCity. We have several properties in Galway close to the NUI Galway campus and you will share with other Irish and international students and interns.


  • Single bedroom, while kitchen/living areas are shared with a maximum of 7 others
  • While some apartments are equipped with shared bathrooms, apartment residences with en-suite facilities for those who wish to have their own private toilet/shower are available at a supplement
  • Fully furnished kitchen, a comfortable lounge area, heating, television, laundry facilities and internet access
  • EazyCity offers a 24 hour emergency phone number and a full maintenance service

Life on Campus at NUI Galway
