Qualification Framework in Ireland
The National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ) provides a structure to compare and contrast the level and standard of different qualifications. This helps you to make informed decisions about your qualification choices and to consider progression opportunities available to you. The NFQ also makes it easier for you to explain to others what qualifications you hold, or are studying for. This becomes very important when you are considering further learning or when you are applying for a job – at home or abroad.
Average Tuition Fees in Ireland
Tuition costs vary considerably depending on the institution and the study programme. Tuition costs do not remain static, so it is important to double check fees with the Institution(s) you are considering applying to.
Living costs in Ireland
Every year estimates are published which give an indication of how much it costs to be a student for one academic year (nine months) in Ireland.
- Room €300 – €650

- Food (based on eating at campus restaurants) €420
- Heat & Light (based on 3 people sharing) €50

Rents and many prices are cheaper for those living outside of Dublin so lower overall costs can be expected.
When moving to Ireland for study, you should also budget an additional sum for one-off start-up costs – such as buying kitchen items, bedding, a television, mobile phone, etc – and also for any international travel you plan during the year.
