Students seeking university academic credit are required to complete an Academic Credit Form and return it to our Administrator as a PDF document immediately upon booking an archaeology course. NUI Galway will also require a copy of your Birth Certificate or Driving License for ID purposes and to ensure the efficient transfer of your transcript to your university. In order to ensure there is no delay in sending on your transcript, great care should be taken when completing the academic credit form – please check with your home university to get the precise address to which the transcript should be sent.
