The NCI has several scholarships available to international students for the 2024 school year.

Located in Dublin, the National College of Ireland’s mission is “to change lives through education.” NCI’s small group teaching model means students prosper in a friendly and supportive atmosphere where they get to know lecturers, staff and their fellow students.

Scholarships for international students

National College of Ireland has an extensive scholarship and bursary portfolio for international students which aims to reward excellence and promote diversity among their student body.

To secure your scholarship, you are required to pay your fees in full within the published deadlines for each scholarship.

All students who receive offers to study for any of the following courses are automatically assessed for these scholarships based on their previous academic performance. There is no requirement for you to submit a scholarship application form for these scholarships.

Masters Academic Merit Scholarships€2,000 – €4,000
Higher Diploma Scholarship€4,000
Entrepreneurship Scholarship€5,000
AI for Business Scholarship€5,000
Undergraduate Academic Scholarships€2,000

Scholarships from previous intakes do not carry over into September 2024, so if you previously held a 50% scholarship for any programme and had paid your fees, but are now deferring to September 2024, you will need to top up to the new net tuition fee.
