    So here's my situation...

    I'm an EU citizen but I'm considered a non-EU applicant because I'm not a resident. Now, since I'm going to be in Ireland for the next 5 years, I was wondering if I'd be able to get EU tuition rates after 3 years living in Ireland??? I'm sure it doesn't work that way but I thought I'd ask anyway. :)

    Heheh. Don't mean to laugh but the answer is a big NO. I'm in the exact same situation as you. Since certain spots are dedicated for EU and non-EU students, so are the entrance requirements. You pay less, it's harder to get in, you pay more, it's easier. Pretty much that simple. This was reinforced by a recent Irish court ruling.

    But, watch the European courts, it's being appealed from what I've heard. ;)

    Interesting. Any chance of more information on the case? As I guess I'm officially an expat I don't keep up on Irish news as much as I'd like to.
