Established in 1974, Griffith College is Ireland’s leading independent third level institution, with campuses in Dublin, Cork and Limerick. Over the past forty years, Griffith College has established a national and international reputation for academic excellence and student success. Our graduates have gone on to successful careers in a wide variety of sectors, from accountancy, business and computing to music, fashion, design and law. Our four campus locations each have a unique history and atmosphere which contributes to a rounded and engaging educational experience.
The original Dublin campus buildings date back over 200 years to their construction in 1813. During the past two centuries they have regularly played a part in both local and national political events. Since its purchase by Griffith College in 1991, we have sought to combine the rich history of the buildings that surround us with the academic objectives of the College. The site has seen significant investment with student accommodation and a conference centre complementing the original buildings.
On June 1st 2005, Skerry’s Cork Business School merged with Griffith College.

As Griffith College Cork, its main five acre campus is located in the city’s north side, a short walk from the main train station and shopping thoroughfares.

We’re committed to upholding standards of excellence from the moment you apply until you graduate from your programme, and even after.
In the context of education ‘quality’ can be defined as the process of delivering on the expectations of, and proposed outcomes for, all stakeholders. This includes Learners, Educators, Accrediting Bodies, Employers, and the Community. In Griffith College, we define this as excellence in all aspects of College activities, from learner application for a programme through to graduation from the programme.
Quality Assurance and Enhancement policies and procedures will only be effective if they are supported by all stakeholders. Quality is the responsibility of everyone in the College and the College requires all Learners, Staff and Partners to engage with the process. The College encourages a culture of quality enhancement at all levels. This means inclusiveness in all aspects of Quality Assurance. This includes the involvement of Learners, Academic Staff, External Examiners, Verifiers and Employers.
