DIFC has been a recognised NCUK Delivery Partner since 2004 and has since placed over 1,000 students onto graduate and postgraduate courses at partner universities and colleges in Ireland and the UK.

DIFC Cork opened in October 2017 and is based on Griffith College Cork Campus, delivering International Foundation Year qualifications including Engineering and Technology, Science, Health and Science to international students. DIFC Cork will also be running the NCUK Pre-Masters Preparation qualification from January 2018.

The opening of our new DIFC-NCUK centre in Cork represents the next phase in the development of DIFC-NCUK qualifications in Ireland. Within the next 2-3 years, we will have 3 centres in Ireland based in Dublin, Cork and Galway with around 400 students studying on the DIFC-NCUK foundation courses.
