Studyportals International Student Satisfaction Awards 2016 – Ireland


Also this year, many students have reviewed their experiences of studying at a different university. Based on these reviews, Studyportals has created the International Student Satisfaction Awards. These awards are based on thousands of reviews and opinions from international students in Europe.

Many students that went to study in Ireland have shared their experience. A total of 187 students left a review of their experience in Ireland, with an overall satisfaction grade of 9.2, ranking 2nd in this year’s award session! 20 different schools have been reviewed, of which 3 universities are awarded. A university is eligible for an award when having an average student satisfaction of at least 8 out of 10 based on a minimum of 20 reviews.

Unlike university rankings, Studyportals’ International Student Satisfaction Awards are based on thousands of reviews and opinions from international students in Europe. We created three award categories to distinguish between levels of satisfaction:

  • Award for Very Good International Student Satisfaction: at least 8.0 out of 10
  • Award for Excellent International Student Satisfaction: between 9.0 and 9.4 out of 10
  • Award for Outstanding International Student Satisfaction: at least 9.5 out of 10

3 Irish universities received an award:

Reviews Score Award
Mary Immaculate College, University of Limerick 26 9.5+ Outstanding
University College Cork 29 9.5+ Outstanding
University College Dublin 32 9+ Excellent

What international students say about studying in Ireland:

I would recommend Ireland because it was just a wonderful experience of finding a home away from home. Also, experiencing cultural similarities and differences you gain such a treasure of experience. Everything just fell into place.
