DIFC has been delivering the NCUK International Foundation Year and Pre-Masters Preparation qualifications since 2004. In September 2017, DIFC opened a new campus in Cork – Ireland’s second largest city.
DIFC also offers an international student experience that is second-to-none, with students from over 25 different nationalities studying across two campuses in Dublin and Cork – voted two of the friendliest cities in the world. A key priority of all the teaching & support staff at DIFC is the well-being and academic endeavours of their students, who are fully supported to help achieve their study goals.
One of the most popular pathways at DIFC Cork is their specialised IFY Health & Science Foundation programme that provides a pathway for students to study in one of its four Medicine partner univerisities in mainland Europe. The IFY Health & Science also offers progression to study Dentistry, Pharmacy and Nursing.
I am thrilled to lead this new centre as it embeds itself into the educational life of Cork, a UNESCO Learning City and a recognised international centre of culture, research and business. I know that just as DIFC will find an excellent second home in Cork, so DIFC will be instrumental in expanding Cork’s appeal to talented, ambitious international students.
