Towards a For-Profit University in Dublin: Another Brick in the Wall of Neo-Liberalism?
Higher Education Review, v43 n1 p38-56 Aut 2010
This article concerns the provision of for-profit higher education in the Republic of Ireland (RoI), particularly in Dublin. It briefly sketches the general development of university/college provision in the RoI and, more importantly, it describes certain aspects of the current state of play and makes a tentative prediction for the future--namely, that an indigenous for-profit university will emerge in Dublin in the near future which, for good or ill, will bring the RoI into line with much of the rest of the western world. It provides details of selected for-profit higher and further education providers in Dublin.
