European Schools Guidance Service

The Department of Education provides funding for access to appropriate guidance for the children of Irish parents who are enrolled in the 13 European Schools in 6 European countries.
This service is coordinated by the 
National Centre for Guidance in Education (NCGE)  / Euroguidance Ireland and is delivered by qualified guidance counsellors recognised by the Irish Department of Education.

This guidance support is intended to supplement, but not replace, the guidance support already available to students in the European Schools.
It is directed specifically to the needs of Irish students who may be considering an application to Irish third-level institutions and who have questions regarding general entry requirements, particular course requirements, application procedures and deadlines.

The service is provided in the autumn term each year.
