Applicants with an EU, EFTA, UK qualification other than the Irish Leaving Certificate.

COVID-19 Update:

For any examinations/qualifications which are normally recognised, we will continue to accept such results, provided they are formally issued by the examining bodies, in accordance with the timelines for 2020 admission. 

However, we will keep the situation under review and if there is a significant difference in grade distribution relative to Leaving Certificate results, we reserve the right to implement a system of proportionality.

UK Applicants
In the period of uncertainty following the recent UK referendum to leave the European Union, the Irish universities collectively wish to reassure all UK students currently enrolled in an Irish university that they will continue to enjoy the same conditions as other EU students regarding fees and contributions, for the duration of their degree.

The Irish universities also confirm that UK applicants planning to enter an Irish university in 2017/18 will likewise enjoy these same conditions as other EU students for the duration of their degree. We do not currently know what the situation for 2019 applicants will be.

As previously announced, UK applicants to Irish universities in 2016 and following years will benefit from a revised model for converting A-Level grades to Leaving Certificate points.

In the context of Brexit, the Irish universities wish to reaffirm their desire to encourage student mobility between the UK and the Republic of Ireland, and particularly with Northern Ireland.
