Studying in Ireland

Why study in Ireland?

A common language, a shared if sometimes troubled history, and easy travel links are just some of the reasons that many UK students considering studying outside the country have for choosing Ireland.

  • Ireland is a small country with a young population and its cities, especially Dublin and Galway, are cosmopolitan, with a continental European feel. The home of James Joyce, Samuel Beckett, Oscar Wilde and W.B. Yeats, Ireland has a strong literary tradition and this is reflected in the country’s culture which also embraces the new with musicians like Hozier and U2.
  • One of the big attractions for students from the UK is the common language, both for instruction and in the wider community. Technically, Gaelic is the first official language and spoken daily by a small minority of the population. The federal National University of Ireland requires all students educated in Ireland to pass Gaelic as part of their matriculation but those educated in the UK and elsewhere are exempt from this requirement. All but a very small number of university courses are delivered in English.
  • Irish universities have a solid record for scholarship. 
  • Tuition is free for students from other EU/European Economic Area (EEA) countries, except for a contribution of €3,000 towards equipment, administration and examination.
