COVID-19: Updates and information

Increase in COVID-19 cases: 4 June 2021

The HSE has informed us of a number of positive cases of Covid-19 among our campus community in recent weeks. If you have symptoms of Covid-19 you should contact the Student Health Unit or your own GP for formal consultation and advice. You can request a consultation with the Student Health Unit here, or phone 091-494337.

Even if you have no symptoms, you can visit the campus test centre on a walk-in basis to be tested for Covid-19.  You do not need an appointment or a GP referral.  The same applies to all test centres throughout the country, so please visit the HSE website for more information. Please be safe and continue to follow the public health guidelines. Covid-19 is still present and causing illness. Until you are vaccinated and protected from Covid-19 you may still get sick and infect others. 

When should I self-isolate? 

You should self-isolate in the following instances: 
  1. If you have symptoms of COVID-19.
  2. While you await a test appointment and your test results, if you have symptoms of COVID-19.
  3. If you have had a positive test result for COVID-19, even if you have mild symptoms no symptoms.
If you are being tested as a close contact and you do not have symptoms of COVID-19, you should restrict your movements. You will only need to self-isolate if you develop symptoms of COVID-19.   

  • Stay at home, in a room with a window you can open.
  • Keep away from other people - especially older people or anyone with a long-term medical condition.
  • Phone your GP to see if you need a test for COVID-19 (coronavirus).
  • Use a different bathroom to others in your household, if possible.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes using a tissue - clean your hands properly after.
  • Ask friends, family or delivery drivers to drop off food or supplies - if they stand back from the door, you can speak with them.
  • Wash your hands properly and often.
  • Use your own towel - do not share a towel with others.
  • Clean your room every day with a household cleaner or disinfectant.

UniCoV rapid testing project

What is UniCoV and how do I sign-up?

UniCoV is a new multi-site project coordinated by NUI Galway that explores rapid tests for Covid-19 to develop an early warning system for virus prevention in Irish higher education settings. The aim of the UniCoV research study is to reduce disruptions to university teaching and learning and to facilitate a return to campus activity. We aim to involve at least 2,000 volunteer participants to self-test and report results starting in June. We need your help.

If you are interested in the UniCoV study, please submit your details via this secure link and a member of the study team will contact you in the coming weeks with the study information. Thank you.

Recent Covid-19 Research News

  • The Role of Ventilation in Virus Mitigation

Thank you

Today marks the last day of our exam period and, therefore, the closure of a most challenging academic year. While the year began with despair and the sudden closure of university campuses to all but essential services, it ends with hope, the gradual lifting of restrictions and the roll-out of vaccines across society. We experienced this rollercoaster year together, and it was our community’s shared commitment, kindness and grit that got us through. This historic year will live long in the memory for us all.

On this day, the virus continues to spread in our community and we must continue to be vigilant and follow the public health expertise that has guided us unfailingly since the beginning of the pandemic. But we must also look ahead with optimism and plan for the year to come. Below, we share with you some important information about the here-and-now and the hoped-to-be for the months to come.

Increase in Covid-19 cases

The HSE has informed us of a number of positive cases of Covid-19 among our campus community in recent weeks. If you have symptoms of Covid-19 you should contact the Student Health Unit or your own GP for formal consultation and advice. You can request a consultation with the Student Health Unit here, or phone 091-494337.

With many of our community travelling home this weekend, you do not want to take Covid-19 with you. Even if you have no symptoms, you can visit the campus test centre on a walk-in basis to be tested for Covid-19.  You do not need an appointment or a GP referral.  The same applies to all test centres throughout the country, so please visit the HSE website for more information. Please be safe and continue to follow the public health guidelines. Covid-19 is still present and causing illness. Until you are vaccinated and protected from Covid-19 you may still get sick and infect others. 

Closure of some on-campus study spaces

Now that the exam period has concluded, please be aware that study spaces in the following areas on campus will close from 5pm this evening (Friday, 4 June):

  • Reading Room, THB-G010 and THB-G011 (Hardiman Building)
  • Bailey Allen Hall and the Cube (Áras na Mac Léinn)
  • 239 O’Higgins Suite (Cairnes Building)

Campus services next week

Please note that Monday is a Bank Holiday in the Republic of Ireland.

  • The Library will remain open next week from 8.30am-5.30pm, Tuesday – Friday and 8.30am-5.30pm, Monday – Friday from then onwards. Always check the Library website for up-to-date opening hours: http://library.nuigalway.ie/about/openinghours
  • An Bhialann will also remain open, from 9am-4pm Tuesday – Thursday and 9am-3pm on Friday next week. An Bhialann services beyond next week will be reviewed in line with demand.

Autumn exams

The dates for our autumn / repeat exams are set as follows:

  • 30 July: Timetable published for autumn online exams
  • 9 August-19 August (inclusive) – autumn online exams

Next Academic Year

Earlier this week, Minister Simon Harris announced that this year’s Leaving Certificate results will be released on Friday, 3 September. We welcome this announcement, which gives us all clarity on when the CAO will release offers of places on courses, and when our incoming First Year undergraduate students will be in a position to accept those offers, register and take part in orientation for the academic year ahead.

The late release of Leaving Certificate results again this year does, however, impact when and how we facilitate the arrival of our incoming First Year undergraduate students. Provisional dates for the next academic year are as follows:

               Start date for First Year undergraduate students: Monday, 27 September 2021

               Start date for all other students: Monday, 6 September 2021

               First Year Orientation is likely to run from 22-24 September 2021 – dates to be confirmed

               Postgraduate Research Student Orientation will take place in early September 2021 – dates to be confirmed

Due to the late start for First Year undergraduate students, we plan to teach First Year students for the 12 weeks to 17 December, with Semester 1 exams for First Year students replaced by continuous assessment. Semester 2 will be aligned for all years following our return from the Christmas break.

We understand that some of our international students will not be able to travel to Ireland in September due to the uneven roll-out of vaccines internationally and other Covid-related factors. We wish to reassure our international students that, while we wait to welcome them to Galway, we are committed to providing access to online learning at the beginning of Semester 1. We are here for our students and, as always, our colleagues in the International Office continue to consult with current and incoming international students to ensure that we can best address their needs and concerns at this challenging time.

We are working at a sectoral level and within our university to advance preparations for the next academic year in response to Minister Simon Harris’s expectation that students and staff will be back on campus in September. We ask all of our students to please bear with us as we continue with this important planning. We will confirm more details in due course and will update our university community via email and the Alerts page.

Are you cybersecure?

Following the recent cyberattack on the HSE, we all need to be extra vigilant about our cybersecurity. Each one of us has an important part to play in ensuring our data and networks remain secure against phishing, hacking and ransomware attacks.

One thing you can do today to protect our university from cyberattacks:

Be wary of suspicious emails:

  • Do not open email attachments from unsolicited sources
  • Do not follow URL links from unsolicited sources
  • If you receive a suspicious email to your @nuigalway.ie account, report it to phishing@nuigalway.ie

These simple steps will help us all avoid devastating attacks on our data and networks. Find out more about IT security training, anti-virus protection, and ways of recognising phishing, scamming and spoofing at: www.nuigalway.ie/itsecurity

Recent Covid-19 Research News

  • The Role of Ventilation in Virus Mitigation: Dr Marie Coggins (Physics) is an expert in Exposure Science and she is serving on a National Expert Group on the Role of Ventilation in Reducing Transmission of COVID-19. Ventilation is one part of a number of important measures in the prevention of viral spread of Covid-19 in indoor settings, and Dr Coggins described its significance to RTÉ News. The Expert Group is guiding the Government on effective ventilation strategies to help in the continued fight against the virus and the safe reopening of society.

Thank you

Throughout the academic year, we have used this weekly email to update and connect our university community, to share with you the impacts of the pandemic and the expertise and supports available to help us stay safe and well. As exams have concluded, we will now take a pause from these weekly updates for the summer break. However, we commit to keeping our university community informed at key milestones through the summer as we continue to plan and prepare for the year ahead.

What to say at the end of this exceptional year? What else, only ‘Thank you’. Thank you all most sincerely for your continued commitment, for your energy and innovation, for the kindness you have shared with others. Our community spirit has been demonstrated throughout the year in a million little ways. The shared compassion we have demonstrated is profound. And we are all most grateful for it.

The ‘why’ of our university - for our students, for our society and our planet is yours. Yours to live for.

The values we are committed to as a university community – respect, openness, excellence and sustainability – are yours. Yours to live out.

I hope you have time – and take time – to reflect on these over the Summer months after this extraordinary year, where we imagined in poetry but lived in prose.

Enjoy the summer break. Go raibh maith agat. 

Kind regards,

Ciarán.

Professor Ciarán Ó hÓgartaigh

President, NUI Galway

Update for Staff and Students - Monday, 17 May

Dear colleague,

As we mark the beginning of exams at the end of this extraordinary year, we wish all of our students the best of luck. Ordinarily at this time of year, our corridors would be humming with activity with students busily swapping advice on the way into their exam venues and exchanging post-mortems on the way out. This week, however, most of you will be sitting exams online at home.

You might understandably feel cut off from the university community at this time, focused on your own exam performance. However, please do not let that emphasis on results overtake your sense of fairness to others and to the integrity of the exams process: you will remember these days – not only how you did but what you did to get there.

Please also remember that there are lots of supports available to you remotely from where you are. We know that exams are a stressful time for many students. If your stress or anxiety is having an adverse impact on your studies, your health and your wellbeing, please reach out to our student supports, which you can find listed on the University Alerts webpage.

Dealing with Anxiety as we Emerge from Lockdown

Recent cautious steps towards the lifting of lockdown restrictions in Ireland has brought us all a sense of hope. However, for many of us, emerging out of lockdown may bring its own stress and anxiety. Professor Molly Byrne (Psychology) is a member of the national Covid-19 Communications and Behavioural Advisory Group that has been advising the Department of Health throughout the pandemic. Here she shares some practical advice for dealing with anxiety at this time. 

Please share her video message with anyone you think might need it.

5km gems

As we begin to emerge gradually from Level 5 restrictions, we have all become very familiar with the walks, nature, activities and businesses in our 5km radius! As we now begin to move around a bit more freely, we asked university staff to share with us some of the hidden gems within their locality that we might enjoy too over the summer break.

Many of the suggestions revolve around nice walking routes around Galway, and the nearby sights and cafés that can enhance your visit.

Take a look at our staff’s 5km gems and plan an outdoor excursion today.

Summer Staycations

While remaining cautious, we all hope that Covid-19 restrictions will continue to ease over the summer months. With that in mind, our Campus Living team is looking ahead to summer on campus and preparing for family staycations here in Galway. Ireland’s universities want to support the gradual reopening of society, and part of the contribution we can make is by providing high quality self-catering accommodation to support family holidays. Across the country, we hope that our campuses can slowly begin again to welcome people and activities to our cities. It is early days, but we all continue to live in hope. Find out more about our universities’ efforts to support staycations in Ireland by visiting: www.oncampus.

Research & Innovation Consultation

Throughout the Covid-19 crisis our research community has played a profound role in understanding and addressing the impact of the pandemic on health and life. We are rightly proud of the contribution our researchers have made here in the university, in our city and country, and around the world. We are feeling the impact of this work in tangible ways today, and no doubt will continue to do so in the future as the pandemic continues to evolve.

As we emerge from the pandemic, we want to make sure that our research and innovation continues to address the world’s most pressing issues with the focused expertise of our research community. We are currently finalising our Research and Innovation Strategy for the years ahead, and on behalf of the Vice-President for Research and Innovation, I would like to encourage our research community to share their input on the specific challenge of defining those global challenges that we have genuine transformative potential to address.

Through the initial consultation, a number of challenge areas have already come to the fore:

  • Human-Centred development of Data science
  • Models of Equity and Social Justice for global transformation
  • Energy transition
  • Mitigation and Adaptation in Agriculture for Food Security
  • One Health and Combatting Anti-Microbial Resistance
  • ​​​​​​​Ocean and Coastal Health

In order to make sure that we fully capture the potential of NUI Galway to address a number of global challenges, the Research Office is now conducting a further consultation, which will close on Friday 21 May. We are inviting individual researchers and interdisciplinary groups to make a submission to vpresearch@nuigalway.ie that addresses the following questions:

  • What specific Global Challenge can researchers at NUI Galway make a transformative impact on?
  • What internal expertise, external partnerships and stakeholders will be needed to address this Global Challenge?
  • Which of these are already in place (not required), and which would need to be fostered in future?​​​​​​​

Further information on the process and on the development of our Research and Innovation strategy is available on a dedicated SharePoint site here which we will update regularly.

‘Sheer enthusiasm for the subject’

Last week saw the sad passing of Seamus Deane, ‘fathach fir’ in Irish literature as described by our colleague and his friend Breandán MacSuibhne on Nuacht TG4 (12:22 to 13:54). Mar a dúirt Breandán, ‘tá an crann is airde sa choill ar lár’.

In an interview in 1981, reported by Siobhán McSweeney in The Poets’ Picture of Education (The Crane Bag, 1983, p. 136), Deane describes what characterised the good teachers he knew:

it was more sheer enthusiasm for the subject that seemed to go along with a sympathy for the individuals in the class.

As, last week, we also presented the President’s Teaching Awards to a number of our colleagues, I am inclined to think that Deane’s remembrances of enthusiasm for the subject are an appropriate reflection of their talent and ‘a sympathy for the individuals in the class’ an apposite calling in these disconnected times.

Stay Connected

Exams are a rite of passage for our students, marking the end of a semester of study and the beginning of a summer of possibilities and the sense of reflection that this time brings. You deserve no less.

You have been forced by the pandemic to maintain your relationship with our university community remotely, in large part, over the past academic year and, while we look forward with hope to more in-person interaction in the next academic year, we hope that you will continue to stay connected with us and with each other remotely over the summer.

Share your joys and your adventures with us, tagging the university in your social media updates when you can. We take great pride in seeing our students flourish.

Wishing you all a relaxing, restorative and fulfilling summer break.

Kind regards,

Ciarán.
