Nearly 30% of female students claim to have been sexually assaulted, according to a national survey from NUI Galway. 

Specifically, 29% of females, 28% of non-binary students and 10% of males said they were attacked.

The victims said they were incapacitated, forced into the act or threatened.

The Sexual Experiences Survey, conducted by NUI Galway’s Active Consent Programme in partnership with the Union of Students in Ireland surveyed 6,026 third-level students from 21 third-level campuses across Ireland.

The study looked at students’ experiences of sexual violence and harassment in higher education institutions.

Over half of first year students reported experiencing sexual harassment or some form of sexual hostility. This rose to 62% for second year students and 66% for those in third year or higher.
