Student Radio Station

English (Advanced)

One of only three campus community radio stations in Ireland, this radio station has been serving the Galway university student community for over 10 years. As a radio station ‘for students, by students’, it facilitates "genuine participation" rather than one-way interactions with listeners, and provides ‘diverse and eclectic’ weekly talk shows covering a wide range of student issues like LGBT rights, Irish language shows, French language shows, Spanish language shows, university sports coverage, unsigned local artists, current affairs, on campus event coverage and more. Throughout the school year and summer, participants can join a dedicated group of local volunteers who work tirelessly to deliver a series of informative, entertaining and exciting radio programs to the wider community.

Community Music Festival

English (Intermediate)

This organization plans and throws an annual festival to benefit the community. Events include art shows, musical and comedy performances, films, photography, and children’s events. The festival requires a significant amount of preparation and year-round, behind-the-scenes planning. Working with passionate artists, thespians, and event planners, participants can learn the challenges that comprehensive event-planning can entail, while giving back to their host community.
