UCAS stands for the 'Universities and Colleges Admissions Service'. We are the organisation responsible for managing applications to higher education courses in the UK. There is a steady number of students applying to colleges outside of Ireland. The main reason why students apply to the UK is twofold. Theis is a wide variety of courses available in excellent colleges. Also, certain courses are more accessible then those in Irish colleges.
Fees in the UK range from £3000-£9000.
No tuition fees apply to Irish students applying to college in Scotland. Irish students pay a registration cost similar to Ireland. Scottish universities see 400-500 new students starting each year.
