NUI Galway has a strong tradition of links with China and has welcomed Chinese students to study in Ireland for many years.
NUI Galway has amongst the largest number of graduates in China of any Irish university, many working as senior academics in faculties of China’s top universities.
The growing network of NUI Galway graduates in China plays an important role in reinforcing our research links with some of China’s leading universities, including Tsinghua University, Beijing Institute of Technology and Harbin Institute of Technology.
