API at the National University of Ireland, Galway in Galway

Direct Enrollment: Students who choose to study abroad with API at the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUI, Galway) choose from a range of undergraduate courses as offered in the Faculties of Arts (humanities), Commerce (business), Engineering, and Science. Courses are arranged in the seminar and lecture styles, and grades are based predominantly on one final exam. Summer School in Irish Studies: Students who choose to study abroad in Galway with API during the summer are provided an integrated introduction to Irish Studies, incorporating elements from all the contributing disciplines. It consists of a series of interdisciplinary seminars focusing on key themes in Irish Studies such as identity, emigration, and religion, and a broad range of elective courses. The series of field trips is designed to complement the courses taught in the various modules and is an integral element in the overall program structure. In addition, as part of the Irish Studies program, an introductory non-credit class in the Irish language (Gaelic) is provided for interested students. HIGHLIGHTS Galway is a charming coastal city on the west coast of Ireland. County Galway is Ireland’s largest Gaelic-speaking area in the country, and even today the mother tongue of much of the population is the native Irish language. The countryside surrounding Galway seems not to have changed in 150 years. Fields that were abandoned during the potato famine of the mid-1800s still lie untouched, and one sees the low stone walls and rolling hillsides that characterize Ireland. In the midst of the history and tradition of the countryside lies the bustling city of Galway. Students find plenty of diversion in the city labeled the “Cultural Capital of Ireland.” Students can choose to attend a play at one of three world-renowned theaters or visit the 13th century Collegiate Church of St. Nicholas, where Christopher Columbus is said to have prayed before undertaking his journey to the New World.
