We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
When it comes to higher education, Ireland is just as prestigious as its neighbours elsewhere in the British Isles. A Masters in Ireland will allow you to combine centuries of academic tradition with high-quality, modern degree programmes.
Irish postgraduate programmes are integrated into the country's innovative degree system. You'll be able to study a Masters in Ireland at internationally renowned research universities, or at one of the country's specialised Institutes of Technology (offering technical and professional training).
Wherever and whatever you study, you'll enjoy your time in a famously friendly country with a culture and traditions celebrated around the world. You'll be able to explore historic cities, or visit the stunning landscapes that have led Ireland to be referred to as 'the Emerald Isle'.
Despite its relatively small size, Ireland attracts over 15,000 international students. Many are enrolled on Masters degrees and similar postgraduate programmes.
Irish Masters degrees normally take one year to complete, with some programmes extending to two years. The academic year in Ireland runs between September and June.
The cost of a Masters degree in Ireland varies slightly with nationality. EU and EEA students will usually pay around €6,000 per year. Costs for international applicants are higher, with typical fees starting at €9,000. Exact fees will vary between individual programmes.
Though Ireland maintains its own language (Irish Gaelic), English is the main spoken language in Ireland and is used for teaching at all of the country's universities.
EU and EEA students are entitled to live and study in Ireland without a visa. Others will need to apply for a student visa and register their presence upon arrival.
You can find more information about Masters degrees in Ireland in our dedicated study guide. This includes details of the Irish university system, the structure of Irish postgraduate programmes and a more extensive overview of the Irish student visa system.
