We are delighted that you have applied to National College of Ireland (NCI). We have created a library of Guides that contain some really useful information and practical tips to help students plan for a successful, safe and stress-free journey to Ireland.  


We're here to help you prepare for your studies at NCI.

About twelve weeks before the start of classes, we begin emailing students that have accepted their place. The emails cover important topics to help you prepare for your journey and if you still have questions you can join a webinar or Facebook live session for each topic.   We will be using MS Teams for our webinars and recommend you download the app to join.
