Tell me about Griffith
A fee-paying college with a sterling reputation and more than 7,000 students in campuses in Dublin, Cork and Limerick. It is Ireland’s largest private third-
level institution.

Why change to Griffith?
– The college offers more than 65 academically challenging programmes with an industry focus, work placements and good student support.
– Griffith offers a very diverse range of courses, including law; business; accounting and finance; design; hospitality management; computer science; applied digital media; journalism and media; music and drama; training and education.
– Lecturers tend to be actively working and engaged with their chosen field and are impressive teachers.

Why not change to Griffith?
– The social scene is strong but there’s less choice of clubs and societies than in some of the larger colleges.
– Private colleges cost more as you have to shell out for fees, although the college points out that the rising registration charge in publicly-funded third-levels is catching up on their charges.

Changes since February?
