Universities and Higher Education
The higher education system in Ireland consists of the university sector, institutes of technology and private independent colleges.
There are hundreds of scholarships available for international students from a wide variety of sources such as the Government of Ireland, the Irish higher education institutions and other organizations. These are awarded solely at the discretion of the individual organizations that set down their own criteria for eligibility.
Awarded to only 60 international students each year, the Government of Ireland International Scholarships is designed to provide non-EU students the opportunity to study in Ireland for free. It includes a tuition fee waiver and an allowance of 10,000 Euros to cover the student’s accommodation and living expenses.
Offered by one of the most prestigious schools in the country, the National University of Ireland is extending this scholarship grant to eligible international candidates who wish to pursue their postgraduate degrees in Ireland. Getting this scholarship is one of the best ways to study in Ireland for free.
Irish education providers regularly offer scholarships up to 100% to qualifying international students, based on academic merit.
