Degrees in Ireland

Ireland's excellent reputation for education and its welcoming culture has made it an increasingly attractive place for foreign students. Two further factors play in to Ireland's growing popularity. First, being part of the EU helps to make it an easy and accessible student destination for students from within the EU. Further, English being the main language of instruction also makes it highly attractive for students from all over the world.

Ireland is historically known as the "Island of Saints and Scholars" and has a long and strong tradition of education. This has meant that  education has always been highly valued and a focus for funding and development.  It has also been a major factor in Ireland's economic success in recent years. Among other things, Ireland was named "Best Place in the World to Live" by the Economist in 2005. It is also commonly referred to as the "Celtic Tiger" and was ranked  the second wealthiest country per capita in the world by the UN Development Programme (2005).

There are also 14 institutes of Technology that offer programs at degree, national diploma and national certificate levels in a wide range of subjects such as engineering and science.

Many institutes of technology hold postgraduate diploma and degree programs, both taught and research.

There are five Colleges of Education for educating primary school teachers. Independent third level colleges offer certificate, diploma and degree programs in such areas as accountancy and business studies, law, humanities, hotel and catering, tourism studies and art.
