Time spent studying abroad enriches a student’s life, academically and in future career terms. The experience improves foreign language development, intercultural skills, self-reliance and self-awareness. Employers value experience abroad - it can increase the students' employability and job prospects going forward.
Students opt to study abroad for different reasons: as an alternative to points pressure and the CAO system; lower entry requirements; access to courses that are not available in Ireland; or, you may simply want the experience of studying outside Ireland.
It is important to carefully consider the differences between studying here and abroad - Application procedures, duration of courses, fees, living expenses etc. as part of making an informaed decision.
