About the institution

CTY Ire­land is a pro­gram for high-abil­i­ty stu­dents aged 6 to 17 from Ire­land and abroad. Par­tic­i­pat­ing stu­dents take col­lege-lev­el cours­es while still at school. CTY Ire­land runs Sat­ur­day, sum­mer, and cor­re­spon­dence cours­es for aca­d­e­m­i­cal­ly tal­ent­ed stu­dents, and also an ear­ly uni­ver­si­ty entrance pro­gram. As well as run­ning class­es, CTY Ire­land par­tic­i­pates in numer­ous research projects for gift­ed chil­dren with part­ners in Europe and the Unit­ed States. CTY Ire­land was estab­lished at Dublin City Uni­ver­si­ty in 1992 and, since its first sum­mer pro­gram in 1993, over 50,000 stu­dents have attend­ed or par­tic­i­pat­ed in courses.
