Colleges and universities in Dublin


university in dublinFor a relatively small city, Dublin has a great range of universities and colleges covering every conceivable course.

Depending on their needs, expats can choose from the historical Trinity College or more newly established colleges like Griffith College. While the prestige of attending Trinity might seem attractive, Dublin has many prestigious colleges and universities on offer, so prospective students should be sure to explore their options thoroughly before making a decision.
Some students with ties to the EEA may be eligible for the Free Fees Initiative. This allows free full-time undergraduate education at Irish universities. Students who wish to avail themselves of this scheme will need to fulfil certain conditions, such as either being a legal citizen or national of an EEA state themselves, or being a direct family member of one.

Non-EU nationals will be faced with a larger bill, but it is manageable in comparison to the international fees levied by universities in the United States.
