Most graduates of UCD, UCC, NUIG, Maynooth University, the Royal College of Surgeons, the National College of Art & Design, and many others (see the full list here), even if they are living abroad, are entitled to elect three senators after each general election.
The deadline to register to vote for our three “NUI senators” is the 26th of February 2015. Register to vote by clicking here.
The Government has announced plans to extend the electorate to include all Irish graduates, but the legislation is still in preparation and it seems likely that there will be no change before the next election. This might be the last time we elect three NUI senators, so play your part.

A list of the twenty-one Senators elected in the NUI constituency since 1938 with short biographies is available here.
