St. Angela's College, Sligo is a college of the National University of Ireland, Galway since 2006. Prior to this, since 1978, the college was a recognised college of the National University of Ireland. St. Angela’s College, Sligo was founded by the Ursuline Order in 1952.

The college is located outside the town of Sligo, Ireland, on the shores on Lough Gill. It focuses primarily on education and nursing courses.

The college offers courses in Home Economics teacher training with one of four options (Economics and Consumer Studies, Gaeilge, Biology and Science, Religious Education). Other courses on offer include: Nursing degrees, Bachelor of Arts in Economics and the Bachelor of Applied Science in Food Studies to name a few.

In 2007 with the closure of St Catherine’s College of Education for Home Economics, Sion Hill, Blackrock Dublin, St Angela's became the centre for Home Economics education in Ireland.[1] [2]

Recently erected on the college campus are: 4* student accommodation, a laundrette, a take away and a Mace store.
