The modular structure is designed with flexibility in mind, enabling you to balance study with work and other commitments and to accumulate credits over a time frame that suits your lifestyle. Learning is delivered via a blend of distance and online resources, on-campus tutorials and labs, and company-based projects. Tutorials take place in NUI Galway and subject to sufficient demand some may also be delivered in the University of Limerick.

The programme offers awards at a level to suit you:

  • B.Sc. in Science & Technology Studies
  • Diploma in Science & Technology Studies
  • Specialist Diplomas: Lean & Quality Systems, Medical Device Science, Form & Function of the Human Body, Environmental Sustainability
