Task Force on Students Affected
by the Closure of Private Colleges
A number of students affected by the college closures have already found alternative study courses either with the assistance of members of the Task Force or independently. Nonetheless, many students still need to find alternative courses in order to complete their studies in Ireland. The Task Force is engaging with high-quality private providers to examine the options for reasonable accommodation to assist these students. Colleges offering places to students will have to charge a fee to cover some of their costs, but this will be at a significant discount in acknowledgement that a fee has already been paid to the closed college.
As set out in Ireland’s International Education Strategy 2010-15, the interests of students are at the heart of our concerns. The Irish education and training system aims to offer international students a high-quality education and a unique, positive and enriching whole student experience that is based on strong integration with their Irish peers.
