Studying In Ireland, Things To Consider

Students wishing to go to Ireland are in for a treat. Ireland is a gorgeous place with verdant green hills, beautiful weather, dramatic landscapes, shamrocks, and rural villages to take your breath away. Students find Ireland an attractive place to study because of the high level of education, the post-study work visa benefits, and the ease of living. While Ireland is slightly expensive, it is not as expensive as living and studying in London.

Students travelling to Ireland usually need a student visa that falls in line with their educational requirements. Most long and short term courses require student visas, proof of admission, and a few other documents. Republic of Ireland Immigration Lawyers have lists of paperwork and documents for the visa process to help you get the visa quickly. They can help with the visa application, documentation, and processing to ensure no hiccups in your education.

Since international students usually have a lot of excitement about moving for their studies and don’t do enough research about Ireland. We’re here to help you with a few things to consider while studying in Ireland.


Ireland is known for its diverse student population. There are international students from all nations across the globe. While this is a great reason to choose Ireland, you should also take advantage of the diverse student population to increase your networking. Learning about different cultures and traditions and making lifelong friends is an excellent way to grow.

Since students must keep up their grades, learning about different cultures from peers will help broaden your scope of thinking and help you get an all-rounded education. Irish universities are incredibly inclusive and believe in being cognizant of gender identities. It is necessary to be sensitive about other people and their orientations without passing crass remarks, abuses, or offensive jokes.

When in Ireland, you should learn to accept different people, skin colours, nationalities, religions, and orientations.

Stay Back Option:

Ireland offers post-study work visas for international students earning a degree. The Third Level Graduate Program allows students to seek employment after graduation and to apply for a permit. Qualifying students need Stamp 2 immigration permission and should hold an immigration registration card. Other conditions come with the stay back option, but you should check these in detail with your immigration consultant.

Students who are allowed a stay back option can stay in Ireland for up to two years before reapplying or requiring additional permissions.

Potential Job Prospects:

Ireland has become a hub for small and large industries. Commerce is steadily growing, and there are job vacancies with good growth potential. Economic recovery is taking its time but is steady. Students with higher or postgraduate degrees from Ireland can expect better pay packages than those without. Masters degrees and PhD students can also be awarded nearly €8,000 more than average salaries.

Irish businesses value education and prefer hiring students with relevant skills and industry experience. Ideally, students should consider part-time work during their studies to gain local knowledge. While on a student visa, students can work part-time for 20 hours a week during the semester and work full time at 40 hours a week during breaks and holidays.

Having local work experience and understanding the Irish industry, governance, and business culture will help gain employment after completing studies. Many businesses prefer hiring temporary workers as full-time staff after graduation. If this interests you, you should consider getting a part-time job in Ireland while you are studying and completing your degree.


The Irish Government has released a list of scholarships available to international students of up to €10,000 stipend for 60 students annually. They are eligible if they have a ready and available offer letter from Irish Institutions offering higher education. These students also get a full fee waiver for one year. Students eligible for this scholarship program are selected from their Bachelors, Masters, or PhD studies.

Apart from the Irish Government, there are also other scholarship awarding bodies. Each has its own eligibility criteria. However, domestic and international students should check for the prerequisites before applying. Having a scholarship with a full or partial fee waiver is an excellent way to further your education without the burden of a large student loan. International students can also contact their Irish universities and ask about the scholarships offered.

With so many options available for a beautiful life in Ireland, many students prefer choosing Irish universities for their higher education, applying for a job after studying, and settling in Ireland.
