Ireland has a reputation for excellence in education.  Our higher education (‘third-level’ education) system is similar to that of the UK and many other European countries, and Irish graduates are highly sought after. 

Bachelors degree programmes

These are undergraduate or first-degree qualifications.  All of the Conservatoire’s bachelors programmes are offered with Honours (Level 8 on Ireland’s National Framework of Qualifications), and all of them last four years, except the BA in Drama (Performance) which lasts three years.  Honours qualifications are generally required for entry to postgraduate study.
