Teaching & Learning

NUI Galway and the University of Limerick have a critical role to play as a dynamo energising our Smart Economy with new ideas and creativity. Both Universities are committed to the achievement of academic excellence, to providing leadership through the quality of our research, teaching programmes and our graduates. Both NUI Galway and UL collaborate extensively in the area of teaching and learning. Exciting new initiatives include a unique 'Link to Learn' student exchange programme, which will enable students at either university to choose modules from the other institution as part of their programme.

In a new Link-to-Learn exchange programme, students of both University of Limerick and NUI Galway will have the opportunity to choose specialist modules that interest them, at the other institution. This means that you could choose to study part of your course - even up to a full semester - at NUI Galway, if there is a particular specialist option that interests you.*

We currently have some joint programmes up and running, with more planned for the near future. We are also using the latest video conferencing technology to share lectures between our two universities. By combining the expertise of both universities, the Link-to-Learn programme will give you access to greater choice in the subjects you study as part of your degree.

A New Medical Academy
The Medical Schools at NUI Galway and the University of Limerick have formed a joint Medical Academy in Ballinasloe (Portiuncula) and Roscommon hospitals. As a Medicine student of either University you will have the opportunity to choose your hospital placement at either of these hospitals, if you wish.
