About IES Abroad

The IES Dublin Direct Enrollment Program offers students the opportunity to truly integrate into Irish academic life. You can expect a rich and diverse experience, both from the city of Dublin itself as well as in the classroom. Enrolling directly in Irish institutions through IES gives you the best of both worlds: independence and support. Although you have the independence of being enrolled with local students and local faculty, you have access to all of the services provided by both the Irish institutions as well as the student services provided by IES. IES will help you navigate the Irish system by providing experienced academic advising and support in registration at your specific institution. IES provides a housing placement, orientation, and gives you the opportunity to participate in optional IES field trips and social functions. You also benefit from IES' commitment to students' well-being. All students have access to experienced student services staff, all of whom are trained to support the needs of students studying in Dublin. For the student that is prepared to make the leap, there is a whole new world awaiting you. You must meet each institution's specific requirements, including the requisite minimum GPA (depending on institution, 3.0-3.7 on a 4.0 scale), relevant prerequisites, and Junior or Senior standing. You should select courses in your major or minor and be prepared to provide documentation of relevant prior coursework.
