19th January 2023, India: The National College of Ireland has recently announced a new campus in Dublin, a timely move for this independent higher education institute which has been growing significantly in the past few years. This campus expansion will provide students a chance to enhance their skill set through advanced courses at their state-of-the-art facility, located at the heart of Dublin’s technological hub.
NCI currently houses close to 700 Indian students across bachelor’s and master’s programmes. The new campus will add to NCI’s footprint in Dublin’s IFSC (International Financial Services Centre) which is home to global companies like JP Morgan, Citi, KPMG and PWC.

The new campus is expected to be fully operational by September 2023.
