This chapter discusses key developments in higher education in Ireland during the period from 1793 to 1908. It suggests that the development of Irish higher education in the nineteenth century was marked by three major movements: the gradual secularisation of university education; the democratisation of higher education; and the broadening of university curriculum to include modern languages, the social sciences, and the pure and applied sciences.

Keywords:   higher education, Ireland, university education, secularisation, university curriculum, democratisation, modern languages, social sciences, sciences
