EU Matters.ie - Information about Ireland's membership of the EU


As a result of EU membership, Irish students can study in another Member State through the Erasmus programme.

Because Ireland is in the EU, you have the right to study in another EU country. The college you want to study in has to accept you on the same conditions as their own students and can’t ask you (or your Mam and Dad!) to pay higher course fees.

Students who go abroad as part of their course not only enhance their studies and build up intercultural skills, but meet new friends and have great craic!
