Visa and Immigration
Many students from Non-EU countries will need to apply for a visa to study to Ireland. You can check if you need a visa, and how to apply, on the Irish Naturalisation & Immigration Service (INIS) website http://www.inis.gov.ie/.
Students are responsible for applying for their own visa and ensuring that follow all requirements as detailed by INIS. Please be aware that the visa process can take some time, so it is important that you apply early.
When you arrive in Ireland, you will also need to register with Immigration services to obtain an IRP (Irish Residence Permit). This is required for all Non-EU students who are staying in Ireland for more than 90 days (even if they were from a non-visa required country). The International Office will provide you with further details about the process when you arrive on campus.
Students from non-EU countries are not covered for free medical attention off-campus and must have private medical insurance to meet the requirements for visa applications and residence in Ireland. The insurance should provide cover for accident and/or illness and should cover any period of hospitalisation.
Students can choose to obtain medical insurance from their home country (provided it is valid in Ireland and meets the requirements for immigration) or students can choose to purchase insurance from an Irish Medical Insurance provider.
There is a range of accommodation options available to students depending on their requirements. Further details about the accommodation options is available online here.
