The Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI) is responsible for developing and maintaining the National Qualifications Framework (NFQ) and for quality standards (Quality Assurance and Pastoral Care) in both the higher education sector and English Language schools.
Students are encouraged to use the National Framework of Qualifications to identify the qualification they will achieve before making decisions. Qualifications recognised through the NFQ are quality assured. This means that you can have confidence that your course, and the institution at which you are studying, are reviewed on an ongoing basis.
The Irish National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ) is intended to put you, the international student, at the centre of the education and training system in Ireland. The NFQ provides a structure (a framework) to understand, 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.
Tuition costs vary depending on the course, the institution and whether you are classified as an EU student or non-EU student. They also fluctuate so make sure to double-check the fees with your chosen institution before you begin the application process. Check out the details below depending on the area you are most interested in: Study Abroad, English Language, and undergraduate and postgraduate studies for EU and non-EU nations.
It is important that you establish your status before you make an application to one of the Irish higher education institutions as you will retain your status (EU/non-EU) during your study and you will be unable to change from one category to the other in the middle of a course. There are different application procedures for EU applicants and non EU applicants.
To determine whether you are an EU applicant or a non-EU applicant read the Criteria determining Fee Status.
If you meet the criteria outlined in the above document, you qualify as an EU applicant.
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.

Note that if your attendance is low, you may not be given permission to stay for the next year of your course.
