The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland has been given 'university' status.

The order for RCSI to describe itself as a university within Ireland was approved in both Houses of the Oireachtas earlier.

It's the first time such an authorisation has been secured.

The RCSI now has full rights to use the title to style, market and describe itself as a 'university' both in Ireland and around the world.

Professor Cathal Kelly, chief executive of the RCSI, says: "This announcement marks a significant milestone in our journey, recognising our impact on higher education in Ireland and internationally.

"The title university will significantly contribute to our continuing efforts to attract excellent students, researchers and staff, and build our partnerships and reputation internationally."

The RCSI holds designated awarding body powers to Level 10 (doctoral degree) on the National Framework of Qualifications - and is a recognised college of the National University of Ireland.

It was established to set and support professional standards for surgical training and practice in Ireland.
