Galway Community College

Galway Community College (GCC) has been providing Post Leaving Certificate (PLC) courses since it opened its doors over forty years ago and GCC continues to offer a wide variety of courses catering for many individual needs.

Our aim is to create a caring atmosphere where students are encouraged and helped to develop their unique gifts and talents.  Whether the focus is progression to higher education, re-training or skills development, GCC provides the academic and vocational skills that enable students to attain their maximum potential and participate fully as good citizens in society.

Over the past number of years GCC has worked hard to develop a high standard of further education, specialising in Sport, Childcare, Technology, Business, Music, Film, Performance and Horticulture. GCC takes pride in our reputation for professional delivery of learning coupled with a caring and friendly environment.  Mindful of changes in employment and training, we are committed to reviewing and providing courses that meet students ever changing needs.

Located only ten minutes from Galway city centre and close to GMIT, we are a popular choice for students providing ease of access to all amenities and accommodation.
