Meet our Students
Our student success stories are what it's all about. Our international students have gone on to study medicine, dentistry, law and much more at a number of Irish universities over the years. Read their stories below...
Miray Unal, NUIG Medicine
Not knowing the difficulties of the ILC, I embarked on a journey to study the 1 Year ILC programme at The Institute of Education. I was determined to study medicine, so I chose seven new subjects to prepare myself within 1 Year for the big ILC exams! Was I crazy or did I love challenges? Maybe a bit of both… Looking back, I know that I would not be where I am today if it had not been the perfectly summarised notes and the passionate teachers who gave their valuable time and indispensable knowledge. Thanks to The Institute of Education, I was able to gain 615 points and ended up studying medicine at the National University of Ireland Galway (NUIG).
Dr. Ikpme Neto, TCD Medicine
My time in The Institute of Education was rewarding and full of great experiences. I was able to make it into medical school and I’m currently practising as a doctor. I highly recommend The Institute of Education; they’re easily the best gateway to higher education in Ireland and beyond.
Krystell Chiu, UCC Dentistry
The 6-month ILC programme is intensive but if you have taken UEC3, AS Levels, A Levels or a good foundation programme and are prepared to work hard, you can get the scores to enter a top medical or dental school in Ireland. The amazing teachers who were all approachable, with their very well-planned lessons, were a big help.
All in all, studying in The Institute of Education in Dublin was great. Not only was I prepared well for my Leaving Cert but the Institute made me realise my dream of getting in to Dentistry.
