Established in 1974, Griffith College is Ireland's largest independent 3rd level institution with locations in Dublin, Cork and Limerick. The main campus is situated on seven acres within a mile of St. Stephen's Green on Dublin's South Circular Road.
Griffith College enjoys national and a growing international reputation for student success. The College has gained an enviable, award winning reputation for providing students with first class lectures and excellent study material. Griffith College offers internationally recognised postgraduate and undergraduate degree programmes, complemented by a wide range of professional, short term and corporate training educational solutions - in Griffith College, there is something for everyone. Today, there are over 7,000 students studying in the College, which is a designated educational institute of the Higher Education and Training Awards Council (HETAC).
The academic year 2013/14 marked an important milestone for Griffith College as we celebrate the 40th anniversary of its founding. During that time, many former students have gone on to distinguished careers in Ireland and internationally, in fields as diverse as accountancy, business, computing, design, law, media, music and drama. Our current students continue this tradition of success - most recently, Griffith College accounted for all five finalists for photographer of the year at the 2013 student media awards, while student Philip Murray achieved first in the world in his F5 accountancy exams. Distinguished Fellowship Award recipients at Griffith College include Mary McAleese, 8th President of Ireland, and Nobel Laureates Seamus Heaney and John Hume.
