Film > Young People & Education

Campaigning works!

The hard work, creativity and commitment of the young Migrant Education Access leaders resulted in a major policy change by the government: students who become Irish citizens during their college course no longer have to continue paying high fees - just like any other Irish person, they can access the 'free fees' scheme. This will save young people and their families thousands of euro each year.

The group made this short film (with a tongue-in-cheek title!) to document their journey: Not Bad for a Bunch of Immigrant Kids!* from Migrant Rights Centre Ireland.
