Like most other countries, Ireland requires candidates from many non-EU countries to have a visa to come and study in Ireland. If you are a citizen of any of the non-EU countries on this list you will need a visa to study in Ireland.
Ireland is not a member of the Schengen Agreement. You will, therefore, still have to apply for an Irish visa even if you have a visa for a Schengen country.
Applicants are advised to apply for their visa as early as possible as it normally takes eight weeks for it to be processed but in busy periods it may take longer than this. All applicants must apply for a visa using the Online Visa Application Facility only.
Economics is the study of how societies, governments, businesses, households and individuals allocate their resources and make choices and the consequences of their decisions. They’re concerned with consumers, workers, industry, commerce and government at the level of the individual and the market (micro-economics) and the national economy (macro-economics).
This programme focuses on the analysis of how these and other factors influence the goods and services an economy produces, the resources it uses in production, and the distribution of its output.
It also focuses on contemporary issues such as the globalisation of world markets, international monetary systems, privatisation of industry and the management of the economy.
The modules will expose you to a wide range of cutting-edge knowledge in the area of economics and finance while giving you a solid grounding in the fundamentals of economic thought that you’ll be able to apply to new events in the economy both in Ireland and internationally for many years to come.
All this is complemented by a focus on financial services, and developing an understanding not only of the internal issues in an organisation but also the external pressures and opportunities that firms deal with regularly.
The programme has a strong core in both Economics and Finance, demonstrating the linkages between the topics and how economic thought has shaped the discipline of Finance, while current financial market behaviour provides food for thought for economic theory.
You can develop your own interests in the final year thanks to a wide range of options, and the opportunity to work on an interesting research issue.
The programme involves case studies, presentations, group work and projects as well as the more formal lectures, with tutorial support. All this will develop your analytical abilities and financial knowledge as well as key skills and competencies in team working, independent research and critical analysis.
Study Abroad Opportunities
In Year 3, you have the option to spend one year studying at a partner University in Northern Europe, the United States, Canada or Australia.
On graduation, you may proceed to postgraduate studies leading to the award of MSc, MPhil or PhD at research institutes and universities worldwide.
Typical graduates go on to work in areas such as investment banking, financial services, money markets, commercial banking, journalism, economic analysis, policy analysis, and public/private sector economic research units, or continue in academia to research further topics of interest to them. Given the continuing central importance of the financial services sector to the Irish economy, there is a clear demand for high-quality graduates with numerical, analytical and practical skills in Economics and Finance.
