Keywords: Study Abroad is a free, expert, independent service for anyone looking to study undergraduate programmes abroad.

For most of you, just applying to university in Ireland can be a difficult journey but to apply for courses in universities in Europe, or further afield, can seem bewildering.

At we will:

Inform You
We will advise you on the growing number of excellent degree programmes that are taught through English in Europe and further afield. Over 400 undergraduate degree programmes, taught through English, are currently on offer in Europe. We have listed a selection of these on this site. For the full listing, you should acquire the Irish Times Study Abroad Guide.

We can advise you of the important details of these courses: content, entry requirements, tuition fees and living expenses. We can also arrange for you to receive the prospectuses of the universities that you are interested in.

At this stage, we can meet you and, if you want, your parents to talk you through your choices. We can also arrange for you to visit a university, should you choose.

Support You
Once you’ve decided where you want to apply, we will support you through the application process, including [where relevant] helping you submit your application form and any supporting documentation.

When your Leaving Certificate results come out, we can also assist in getting confirmation from the university that your results meet their requirements.

When you are accepted we can advise on travel arrangements and put you in touch with other Irish students who are also registering with your new university abroad.

Give You A Local Contact Point
We are available on your door step to ensure that your research and application process is as simple as possible. We are your advocate from the moment you apply to the moment you check into your accommodation in your new university abroad… and beyond, if you need us!

Study Abroad Fees Grants & Scholarships. Learn Abroad

In Ireland maintenance grants under the Higher Education Grants Scheme and the Vocational Education Committees Scholarship Scheme are available for undergraduate courses of at least 2 years’ duration in a publicly-funded third-level institution in another EU member state. Fees for degree programmes abroad vary significantly, depending on the country in which the university is located and the subject matter of the degree programme.


How To Apply. Learn Abroad

Some of the Universities of Applied Sciences require copies of school leaving exam results by 02 August and can be inflexible about this, meaning that UK and Irish students can’t enter these programmes in the September following their last year at school. Based on information provided by you, a university decides whether you meet the admission requirements of the programme of your choice.
