Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT) is based at five locations in the west of Ireland. At the largest campus situated in Galway, we look out on the Atlantic Ocean and are reminded of Francis Bacon's observation: "They are ill discoverers that think there is no land when they can see nothing but sea." As a centre of higher education, we are engaged above all else in discovery. We hope that you will join with us in the voyage of learning which, for all of us, now extends throughout our lives.
