Crossing the border to study

There has always been a lot of movement across the border for people pursuing their paths of education.  Over the years, educational institutions across the island of Ireland have forged strong links in facilitating these students.

People move or commute across the border to study for a variety of reasons including:

  • Different courses on offer
  • Quality of living
  • Wider choice of courses

The Border People website acts as a ‘one-stop shop’ for people who wish to pursue studies across the border in detailing entitlements, rights etc. as well as acting as a general information resource on the jurisdiction into which they wish to move to pursue their studies .

Information relevant to those who wish to study across the border to live is tagged by category (health, education etc.), life event (studying moving etc.), target group (frontier workers, parents etc.) – making the process of finding information as easy as possible.

You can browse through all the information records on this site relating to both jurisdictions using the button below.

Alternatively if you have a specific query, you can use the search box below – refining you search by theme (commute, work, live, study) as applicable to your situation.
