Ireland is a country renowned for its natural beauty and Galway is a shining example of this as it combines a vibrant medieval city with a stunning seafront and several national parks nearby along the Wild Atlantic Way. The city is wild and bohemian, and at the same time full of culture, artistry, exceptional food and music. Located west of Galway City, in large tracts of Connemara and across the majestic Aran Islands, is Ireland’s largest Gaeltacht region. Here, the Irish language (Gaeilge) is the everyday spoken language of the people who live and work here. Significantly, Ollscoil na Gaillimhe – University of Galway is Ireland’s only officially bilingual university, where the Irish language is regularly used in academic and social life on campus. Our university is also a University of Sanctuary. As such, it aims to increase public awareness on international protection, migration and nomadism, and to increase the participation of underrepresented groups in third-level education.
