Ireland in brief:

The Republic of Ireland is known for its misty green countryside, culture and tradition (including legends and folklore), and its warm-hearted and friendly people. You can find safe, sandy beaches with full life-guard service during the summer months. The climate in Ireland is mild.  It is common for rain and snow to fall round the year. The economy is small and trade dependent. In Ireland, Kilkenny castle was a well known castle built by the Normans.

Benefits of education in Ireland:

Ireland is an English speaking country with a long tradition of providing education for international students dating back many years The Irish government has recently invested hundreds of millions of euro to further improve our schools, colleges and universities. There are many specialist centres at Irish universities and institutes of technology, which have cutting edge facilities and technologies to provide the skills and training which students need to gain the skills and experience necessary to gain high value employment after graduation.

Expenses & Living Costs

All universities have halls of residence, generally in the form of apartments for 6 to 8 students, with a private bedroom and shared kitchen, living room and bathroom. Average price of a room in a student block or 'village' is € 100 per week. Utilities such as lighting may be extra. Bedding and maybe a few kitchen items, allow about € 90.
As Ireland is quite a cold and wet country during the winter months you should allow about € 57 - € 140 a month.

Including some meals bought on campus or in cheaper restaurants, you will probably spend between € 50 - € 70 a week on these items. EU/EEA (the EU + Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) students are free to work in Ireland. Citizens of countries outside the EU/EEA, who are attending full time courses of at least a year leading to a recognised qualification, are permitted to work part-time (defined as up to 20 hours a week and full-time during holidays).

Requirements for Visa:

Students from the EU/EEA (the EU + Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) and many other countries worldwide (including the USA, Australia, Israel, Singapore, South Africa, Switzerland, South Korea, New Zealand, Norway, Canda and Japan) do not require a student visa to study in Ireland. Other international students will need a student visa to take up a place at an Irish college or university. The list of countries whose citizens require visas is online at the Irish government website:
