Posted 1 November 2018 Ireland Student Visa Student Tips and Advice Working in Ireland

All international students from non-EU/EEA region, including India, need a valid Student Visa to enter Ireland in order to study at any Irish university. Students enrolled on a short-term course of less than 90 days apply for a C-Study Visa while those on a long-term course of more than 90 days apply for a D-Study Visa.

To apply for an Irish Study Visa, non-EEA students must be enrolled to a full-time course on the ILEP list (Interim List of Eligible Programmes). All Ireland Student Visa holders have limited Work Permit and are eligible to work for a stipulated time period in Ireland. The Irish government also provides a Stay Back Option to students from non-EEA countries studying undergraduate or postgraduate course at the universities in Ireland.
