yess im planning on studying vet med / medicine abroad!! entry requirements are easier to attain ( like passes in 6HL subjects & 2H5’s eg ) and its cheaper. and most colleges abroad dont focus on your lc results as they prefer grade averages so the stress of performing well isnt a main stress for you

grade averages = calculate summer xmas results then divide to get average

I will be studying in a Spanish uni next year. You need at least 2 H5 or higher and 4 O6 or higher and the cost is about 1.500 euros

Also, I failed one LC subject this year and the Spanish system are allowing me to resit that exam instead off all (they will add the points fron 2 sittings of the LC in a row) so I am going to sit 3 exams, the one I failed, higher my grade in another and study a new subject.

Im most likely going to study medicine in Poland or Hungary due to reduced entry requirements and just a change of culture from Ireland.

I don't intend on studying abroad but it does seem like a good experience. Please remember that a large chunk of those who go abroad regret it; they will take issue with living there and struggle to fit in. You would want to be pretty outgoing and relatively proficient with the native language to succeed. With that being said though, some countries will have natives with good English too. Just make sure to carefully consider it, sometimes it's a great opportunity, but other times Ireland is the best choice.

someone mentioned it above but poland has fantastic entry requirements that are a lot easier to achieve, so it has been on my mind studying abroad

A lot of small IT colleges across Ireland have fantastic entry requirements also. The same reason you've turned your nose up on them is the same reason you should turn your nose up at Polish colleges (if at all). I'm not saying they're bad; they're meant for a specific type of person looking for a specific career. But if what you want is to go to one of them polish colleges, you'd be saving yourself a lot of money and hassle by choosing a smaller college in Ireland.

It seems that all of you are considering stidyong abroad because the entry requirements are easier. None of you are saying that the qualifications are better. Be careful what country/college/course you choose.

the majority of qualifications are the exact same because it is based in europe with eu regulations and a lot of the courses are thought entirely through english.
