Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT) is based at five locations in the west of Ireland. At the largest campus situated in Galway, we look out on the Atlantic Ocean and are reminded of Francis Bacon's observation: "They are ill discoverers that think there is no land when they can see nothing but sea." As a centre of higher education, we are engaged above all else in discovery. We hope that you will join with us in the voyage of learning which, for all of us, now extends throughout our lives.

Our students and the opportunities we offer them to develop their potential are at the core of our organisation. In the Institute of Technology sector in Ireland, there is a unique blending of courses in science, business, engineering, technology and humanities and it is possible to progress through higher certificate, degree and masters level awards on to PhD. Our award system is aligned with the European Credit Transfer System and this enables our students to transfer with ease to study abroad. International students coming to GMIT can also benefit from this credit transfer arrangement. We have links with almost 100 centres of higher education throughout Europe and the US and we welcome applications from students across the world.

GMIT is involved in a range of research activities involving high-level collaborations with other higher education centres, as well as industry. The Institute also provides a range of consultancy services, working in partnership with business and community organisations to provide higher education throughout the region and to promote the economic, social and cultural development of the west of Ireland.

The core of learning lies in discovery and passion. As explorers and navigators, we know here in the west of Ireland that there are always new journeys worth undertaking. We look forward to navigating the oceans of learning with you.
