DIFC provides full University placement counselling to students from all over the world who wish to study for an overseas degree.

All students who successfully pass the NCUK International Foundation Year or Master’s Preparation qualifications with DIFC will achieve a university place in their chosen field of study. In fact, since 2010 alone we have successfully helped over 1,200 international students progress to undergraduate or postgraduate degrees.

Being the only NCUK Study Centre in Ireland, DIFC offers student’s access to NCUK Universities worldwide – which provides you with thousands of courses to choose from for your university studies. This means it keeps your options open, rather than restricting your progression to just one university.
