Representatives from a variety of faculties were in attendance, including the College of Arts, Social Science & Celtic Studies; the College of Business, Public Policy & Law; the College of Science; the College of Engineering and Informatics; and the College of Medicine. Information was also available from ancillary departments covering admissions, scholarships, fees and accommodation.
Speaking about the event, Principal Terry Fahy thanked NUI Galway for delivering a valuable information evening for students, parents and teachers. He also acknowledged the strong relationship that exists between Yeats College and NUI Galway.
Yeats College Principal, Terry Fahy, said: ‘Yeats College is delighted to be so warmly associated with NUI Galway and we are very proud that approximately 3000 Yeats College alumni have graduated from the university. As a graduate of the University, I was particularly delighted to be hosting the NUI Galway event and I extend best wishes to all of the students who are about to embark on a most rewarding university experience. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff and students of NUI Galway and in particular Celine O’ Donovan and Caroline Loughnane for giving their time so generously’.
