Visa and Immigration Requirements:

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.

Student Life

Living in Dublin

Dublin, the capital city of the Republic of Ireland, is a great student city. Situated on Ireland’s east coast, it is a hub for travel within Ireland as well as a gateway to Europe and beyond. It is geographically close to the mountains and the sea, making it possible to escape the bustle of the city for a walk in the countryside or a swim in the sea.

Student friendly city

The greater Dublin area has a population of nearly 1.5 million people but the city centre itself is relatively small and easy to navigate. Each year, more than 100,000 students come to study in Dublin’s universities, colleges, and language schools, adding to the city’s vibrancy and to its increasingly cosmopolitan population. Over 28,000 TU Dublin students contribute to that vibrancy, studying on campuses that are located in the city centre, and in the nearby suburbs of Blanchardstown and Tallaght. All are easily accessed by public transport and there is also lots of bike parking for students.

Culture and history

Renowned for its many literary giants, Dublin is also a magnet for artists of all kinds – visual, performing, culinary and comedic! Among the many attractions for visitors and citizens alike are its museums and art galleries, many of which welcome visitors without any entrance fee. Historic buildings such as Dublin Castle, Kilmainham Gaol, and the GPO provide a window into life in previous centuries while outdoor amenities like the Phoenix Park, the Botanic Gardens and St. Stephen’s Green are available to all to enjoy. Of course, the city and the surrounding suburbs also offer lots of choice for sporting activity, shopping, as well as lively cafes, restaurants and pubs.
