Written on Wednesday, 12 February 2020 17:30

Applications opened in Denmark last week and are still open for just under another three weeks.

Increasing numbers of Irish students are now studying in Denmark, attracted by the high standard of the programmes, the quality of life, the free fees and low entry requirements (low, compared to Ireland). Proving particularly attractive are the programmes at the employment-focused University Colleges (equivalent to the Dutch Universities of Applied Sciences). The following programmes are proving popular:

Note that a few programmes have competitive entry, but most only look for six passes at Leaving 2 x H5.Those with a QQI Level 6 or HND can apply for 1.5 year ‘Top-up degrees’.

Doctor? Vet? Points? Reignite the Dream
Written on Tuesday, 11 February 2020 21:38

Thinking of becoming a Doctor or a Vet?

At EUNICAS, we are often struck by how early in their school lives some students have ruled themselves out of careers in the health sciences. “Ill never get those sort of points” they say, scowling sadly at a far-off golden mountain. However, it is clear that we are beginning to understand that high points don’t necessary predict successful medical careers. Often students with points in the low 400s, who have then studied in Europe, have become superb doctors, vets or dentists. We are also starting to meet students saying that even if they get into UC/UCD, they’d prefer to go to Italy!

Find out what programmes are available, discover admissions systems that arent interested in your Leaving Cert points, explore the quality of these progrmmes

Another chance to meet Dutch universities in Dublin and Cork
Written on Friday, 15 November 2019 00:00

Further to the successful 'OMG We're Going Dutch' events, over recent years, a group of Dutch universities are returning to Ireland in January, with events in Cork and Dublin. These events have proven critical for students (and their families) who need information and reassurance to feed their decisions as to whether to take that step - (or not) of studying - through English - in the Netherlands, either at undergraduate or Masters level. This event might help you decide whether you want to join over 1000 Irish students, already studying in the Netherlands.

Groningen: the city with the most Irish students in the Netherlands

This is a great opportunity to meet and talk to Dutch Research Universities and Universities of Applied Sciences (see individual event details for those universities travelling) and. most importantly, to share experiences with Irish students currently studying in the Netherlands, at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. You will be able to discuss a wide range of matters, including teaching and learning styles, programme content, entry requirements and financial concerns. You can also discover some important tips to underpin a successful application. Dutch universities offer a very high quality and, despite this ....... remember, they dont usually consder points (for undergraduate) or grades (for Master's) as an important entry criteria.

To book for these events, which are available at no charge, go here:

7th January 2020 CORK

9th January 2020 DUBLIN

EUNiCAS will of course be at all these events to deal with any questions that you may have, about studying in the Netherlands, or elsewhere.

At most of these universities, you have a Right To An Education provided you meet their minimum entry requirements (In Ireland, that is six passes at Leaving Cert, inc 2 x H5 or, for Dutch Universities, six passes at Leaving Cert, inc 2 x H4). Some programmes have subject requirements and most of those in the Health Sciences have an entrance test. Note that those described as UAS (Universities of Applied Sciences) will take a relevant FETAC Level 5 as meeting their entry requirements
