We should probably separate out retail (Gamestop, Xtravision) from dev, publishing, middleware and services like localisation and support.
Also we have listed a lot of the courses here on gd.ie but it is important to indicate that they are at different levels – level 5 up to level 8 – or in other words from certificates up to degrees and beyond. There are very different requirements and expectations between courses.
Also some are ITs, some universities and some private colleges. Why does this matter? Well different levels of fees and different amounts of peer and educational scrutiny.
