As an international student, you may or may not require an Irish study visa to live and work in Ireland. Of course, EU students do not require a visa to study and work.
Non-EU Students: some do and some do not require a study visa.
Non-EU Students should:
- contact the Irish Embassy in their country to see if they require one
- be aware of the difference between a \'C\' Study and a \'D\' Study visa
- apply 3 months in advance of a course commencing
- visit the Department of Justice, Equality and Law Reform, Ireland website at www.justice.ie for further information.
- All non-EU students who register with the Garda National Immigration Bureau (GNIB) will have to study for a minimum of 15 hours per week.
- Non-EU students who do not require a study visa, in the full sense, will still need proof of enrolment at our school to be allowed to enter Ireland as a student.
- At any time, immigration officers may decide to refuse entry to Ireland even to students who have been granted a study visa.
