Advice on Immigration & Visa in Ireland, where you can make sure you get the right documents to make a successful application to your ideal university.
EU students are able to come and study a degree in Ireland providing you are studying at an approved institution for more than three months and have sufficient income to support yourself.
Non-EU students will need to apply for a visa dependent on their nationality.
You will generally need to show the following, regardless of your nationality:
• You have a confirmed place on a course at a recognised education institution
• You are not already in the country on a tourist or business visa
• You have paid all relevant visa fees
• You have sufficient funds to support yourself
• You have comprehensive health insurance cover
Other than EU nations there is a full list of nations that are also exempt from visas which you can view here.
Students from these countries need to supply proof of acceptance and to register with immigration authorities if intending to stay in Ireland for more than 90 days.
If you do need a visa to study in Ireland you can apply online via the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service.
