Are you willing to risk a criminal conviction?

on Thu, 09/25/2014 - 08:04

At NUI Galway we of course want you to enjoy yourselves and experience all element of student life. Yet, some students in the past have gone too far, resulting in a criminal conviction. 

How you decide to act and behave is up to you. It’s your choice. But here are a few things you should know:

Being drunk/disorderly in public, threatening behaviour, failure to comply with Garda instructions and other Anti-Social behaviour can result in prosecution and may leave you with a criminal conviction which can result in….

Your expulsion from NUI Galway and your accommodation

Serious convictions can prevent you from completing your courses: Medicine, Nursing, Health Services and some BA Specialisms which require Garda clearance. You can similarly be expelled for any breaches of the University Code of Conduct and you’ll probably end up in violation of the terms of your lease too.

Garda Clearance Revoked 

You won’t be eligible for jobs involving children or vulnerable adults: Childcare, youth work, Care for the elderly or those with special needs, many volunteer programmes and even sports clubs which all require Garda Clearance. The same goes for jobs in the Public Sector: not just in the County Council, but Primary, Secondary and Third-Level teaching, Nursing, Medicine, any jobs with the Health Service Executive and Private Security all require a clean criminal record.
