Ireland is a relatively small country in comparison with the rest of the world, but it is extremely rich in culture. The country is regularly voted one of the friendliest nations in the world and has more than 20 universities across the land. Its institutes of technology are particularly celebrated throughout the world.
A few select universities in Ireland offer what is called an International Foundation Year Programme. This allows a student to develop subject knowledge and English language skills before taking a full-time undergraduate course. There is a variety of English language specific courses to choose from.
A Bachelor's Degree in Ireland will take either 3 or 4 years to complete, depending on where you choose to study. You may wish to keep this in mind if you are thinking about taking a postgraduate course after your undergraduate degree.
With a Bachelor's degree in Ireland it is also possible to complete a 4-year integrated Masters course in some certain subjects. This is particularly true if you wish to study science or engineering.
Universities in Ireland recognise a wide variety of global qualifications. However, each university will have their own distinct entry requirements and English language requirements too. The best thing to do is to contact the university you wish to attend, or visit their website, to find out what their specific requirements are.
