National College of Ireland is a not-for-profit, state-aided third-level education institution in Dublin. It was formed in 1951 as a joint venture between Irish Jesuits and Irish Trade Unions and was originally named the Catholic Workers College, Dublin.
The college is now an independent college, offering full and part-time courses from undergraduate to postgraduate level, in areas related to, among others, psychology, finance, business, and computing.
The courses are delivered from the IFSC campus in Dublin and across a network of regional centers. National College of Ireland specialist areas includes psychology, human resource management, data analytics, management, cloud computing, fintech, accountancy, cybersecurity, education, and finance.
National College of Ireland is also known for its free public events which include the dot conf digital and web technology conference, the Legends in Your Lunchtime series, the Seven Deadly Skills, In the Psychologists’ Chair, and Marketing Mavericks.
In 1951, the college started as the Catholic Workers College, Dublin in Sandford Lodge, Ranelagh. Established by Fr. Edward Coyne S.J., in association with Trade Unionists such as Walter Beirne, others involved in the college in its initial years included Professor Thomas A. Finlay S.J. and Rev. Edmund Kent S.J. among others.
However, lectures were led by a handful of reliable Jesuits two nights a week, with 103 registered students in the first year. Within 10 years, scholar numbers had dramatically increased.
Connections with trade unions aggravated, as did formal collaborations with employer and management groups. By 1966, almost 1,300 students from trade union and business management backgrounds were learning together at the re-branded National College of Industrial Relations (NCIR).
In 1976, the college gained recognition by the states National Council for Educational Awards (NCEA), the predecessor of HETAC, for a number of its programs.
The institution again re-branded as the National College of Ireland (NCI) in 1998, with an extended National Campus Network, and an array of outreach programs across the country.
As the National College of Ireland continued to grow, the land and buildings at Sandford Road were transferred by the Jesuits to the College Board of Management.
