Why Ireland?

As one of the only English-speaking countries in the EU, Ireland offers the opportunity to experience a different culture without having to grapple with a language barrier. When it comes to job opportunities Ireland is second to none, with many of the world's top companies attracted here by generous tax incentives and a highly educated workforce. As well as tech giants like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, Ireland is currently home to 9 of the world's top 10 pharmaceutical companies and is one of the globe’s largest exporter of pharmaceuticals, which means you certainly won't be short of a job interview when you finish your course. Ireland is home to some of the best universities in the world. Trinity College Dublin is ranked 117th in the 2018 THE World University Rankings and has an international reputation of the highest quality, while University College Dublin and National University of Ireland, Galway rank in the top 250.

Higher Education in Ireland

Irish universities are state-funded and generally operate autonomously. There are seven universities in Ireland, each offering a range of undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes across a wide spectrum of general study areas. There are Institutes of Technology. These institutions provide education and training study programmes in areas such as business, science, engineering, linguistics and music across certificate, diploma and degree levels. There are 14 institutes of technology in Ireland, each with a separate set of programme, course and credit requirements that should be pursued directly with each institution. Colleges of Education solely provide specialised training to aspiring school teachers, via either a three year Bachelor of Education and an 18-month postgraduate diploma. Students wishing to teach at a post-primary level would typically complete a primary degree followed by a postgraduate diploma. And there are third-party private colleges offering education and training in specialist areas such as vocational training, art and design, medicine, business studies, rural development, theology, music and law.

Scholarships

There are hundreds of scholarships available for international students from a wide variety of sources such as the Government of Ireland, the Irish higher education institutions and other organisations. These are awarded solely at the discretion of the individual organisations that set down their own criteria for eligibility. Students are advised to contact the institution or organisation of their choice directly, to obtain more detailed information.
