The NUI Awards Ceremony 2021 is now available to watch. The NUI Awards honours academic distinction among its students, graduates and early career academics.

In 2021 the National University of Ireland granted around €1 million to NUI students, graduates, staff and member institutions across the NUI federation. The NUI Awards Ceremony 2021 celebrates these recipients.

As a unique and historical focal point in Irish higher education, NUI serves the interests of the member institutions, by providing services to them and to their graduates. Related to this, NUI promotes the national and international standing of the National University of Ireland as a whole, by undertaking activities related to scholarship, the advancement of higher education and the cultural and intellectual life of Ireland.

Opening the Ceremony, former Registrar of NUI, Dr Attracta Halpin, noted that “in what has been another hugely challenging year across the higher education sector, we are so proud to mark the achievements of over 140 students, graduates and scholars here today.” The NUI Chancellor, Dr Maurice Manning, extended his warmest congratulations to everyone receiving an award. He commended the winners “in particular on what you have achieved academically and your success under pandemic conditions.”

Dr Patrick O’Leary, who took over as Registrar of NUI in January 2022, commented that “The NUI Awards reward exceptional achievement in academic endeavour but also seek to resource some of our brightest minds to continue their academic careers.  Today we make awards in a wide variety of areas and the work spans studies of the early medieval era to the NUI Dr H H Stewart Medical Scholarships and Prizes, highlighting the importance of medicine and healthcare during COVID-19.  Congratulations to all the awardees.” is a national database of universities, colleges, institutes and providers of third level, CAO and PLC courses in Ireland. We operate a national search database of courses and colleges.
