A friendly face to help you on your way… Shyam Bhupeshkumar Panchal is one of our Student Ambassadors from India, he has put together a short video and blog about his experience of the application process to the National University of Ireland, Galway.

Hey Everyone, 

I hope everyone is keeping well, I would like to share my experience with the application process at NUI Galway.

The application process was straightforward. The student union and especially international office staff are awesome — all necessary details were covered while making the course application and, in my opinion, they have the best user experience interface ever in the college application process. After some time, they also shared an email about the scholarships related to the courses. I dived into that and wrote the scholarship letter – it took almost a week to frame from my side! Then I applied for it within the deadline, and guess what, during the July end of the week, they declared the scholarship results, and with due respect, I received Post Graduate Business Merit Scholarship.

Receiving the scholarship acceptance email was one of the best moments of my life and I shared the ecstatic moment with my parents during the lockdown. So instead, I would say I did have transcendent times during my COVID lockdown. I always received a prompt email reply from the NUI International office during the whole process, and I would like to thank them for all the support they provided. Here I am sharing my best picture from NUI Galway.
