International Qualifications

Qualifications from an Irish university are fully recognised internationally, through the Irish National Framework of Qualifications. This means you can use your Irish university qualification worldwide if you wish to undertake further study or look for work in another country.

Students with qualifications from school or university systems outside Ireland are welcome at Irish universities. Each university is responsible for recognising these qualifications for the purpose of admission to that university. For general information regarding the recognition of foreign qualifications in Ireland, please click here. For detailed information regarding how your qualification will be recognised when you apply for a particular course or programme, please contact the Admissions Office of the university where you wish to study.


Students from outside the EU interested in studying in Ireland should also consult our webpage for additional information regarding what an Irish university can offer you.
