Study Abroad Ireland.
education in Ireland is offered by universities and institutes of specialized
higher education. Universities are financed for the most part by the State
in the form of annual grants-in-aid and non-recurrent grants for capital
expenditure, in a proportion of the order of 90%, as well as by student
fees, endowments, and private donations. Each college has its own governing
body and exercises full control over its finances. Colleges are composed
of faculties and departments.
