Here is what a few of our students have to say:

“It has been a great year with wonderful people. I truly enjoyed the various clubs and societies and what they offered students. The campus is not so quiet after you meet the people who liven it up. The staff has been really helpful and available. It was an incredible experience. Thanks everyone.

Cela a été une excellente année avec des gens merveilleux. J’ai vraiment adoré les clubs de sport et  les associations étudiantes et ce qu’ils proposent. La vie étudiante est moins calme qu’il n’y parait une fois que l’on connaît les personnes qui l’animent. L’équipe administrative a été d’une grande aide et toujours disponible. Cela a été une expérience incroyable. Merci pour tout.”

"The best of an Erasmus in GMIT- Mayo is the big opportunity to improve your English as there are not that many Erasmus students and you get more involved with Irish students. The clubs and societies will help to discover Co. Mayo, including the amazing beaches of Achill Island"                                              

"Lo mejor de un Erasmus en GMIT-Mayo es la mejora del Inglés ya que no hay muchos Erasmus y te permite relacionarte mas con los Irlandeses. Los diferentes clubs y sociedades permiten disfrutar del Co. Mayo incluyendo las increibles playas de la isla de Achill"

"Studying at GMIT has been an eye opening experience that has led to lasting friendships and precious knowledge of a culture that I could never understand so well without an opportunity such as this….."
