 Facilities in Irish Universities
Universities also have sporting, social, religious, crèche and health amenities to ensure that time spent at third level is a fully rounded experience.
At Irish universities, these range from huge theatre style rooms with tiered seating for nearly a thousand students, to smaller, more basic rooms which are fairly similar to your average post-primary school classroom.
While the social side of university life is often a big attraction for students, Irish universities have always been very aware of their responsibility to develop and promote Irish art and culture.

Teaching Matters A challenge that universities the world over have had to face in recent years is the growing demand to take a systematic approach to quality, and to open up their processes to independent assessment.
The Irish Universities Quality Board (IUQB), though originally created by the universities, is being transformed into an independent body with a 14-member board, half of them internal to the universities and the other half, including the chair, from outside - two of the latter being from abroad.
In that respect, the universities are surrendering some of their autonomy, since these reviews and the focus they bring to bear on chosen topics might not be to their liking.
