Ireland Visa Process

Student Visa Overview

International students are welcome in Ireland to pursue a course of studies. In general long term non-EEA (European economic area) students who come to Ireland or who wish to come to Ireland do so to pursue courses which are Language Courses, Further Education Courses or Degree Program courses. There are other types of student such as short term language students and information for those students can be found via the ‘Other Types of Student'.

These are the students who are not in Ireland or who do not wish to come to Ireland to pursue ‘Degree Program' courses or ‘Language and Non-Degree Program' courses.

The information relates to non-EEA Students such as Short Term Language Students, Semester Students and non-EEA Children not accompanied by parents.
