hey there! that is very good you are exploring college opportunities at such a young age! haha, i didn't think much about it until right before i went! but anyway, studying at another country is a brilliant idea, and loads of people do it! first i would recommend deciding on what program you want to study. then i would look to see if those colleges have that program and if it is a good program there.

The ones I am most familiar with are in Dublin (I've been jobsearching there meself). Their web sites are here:

www.tcd.ie
www.ucd.ie
www.dcu.ie

Theres also loads of schools other places like Maynooth, Limerick, etc. Check out the Yahoo Directory to find them by cities and towns:
http://dir.yahoo.com/Education/Highe...tries/Ireland/

You should explore the program you want to study at the college web sites, but also take a look at what they have for international students. They usually have a link on the main page or on the prospective students pages. You want to be sure that the colleges offer you the best resources you need before going there.

Hope that helps, and good luck!

WHAT?! You're only sixteen!!! You still have some time. Spend this time off studying VERY hard, get a tutor. You still have time. If you really wanna go to college, you gotta bust your arse for it, ya know? Make that dream happen! Good luck

Why can't you re-sit it? Loadsa my mates failed Maths and were made to re-take it (during the first year at sixth-form college) Maybe it's different in Wales...

And just 'cos you can't get into those three, doesn't mean you can't go to uni full stop, I'm sure you'll find somewhere right for you. I'm 16 and I don't even know what I want to do at uni, let alone which possible ones I'd like to go to - you've got a while to sort things out, anyway
