Enrolling in an undergraduate or postgraduate program in Ireland requires providing all academic and non-academic documents required.

Once you’ve decided to study in Ireland, it is crucial that you research all available university options to you and select one which meets both your career goals and interests. Be familiar with admission requirements, deadlines and tuition fees before making a final selection. Additionally, it is wise to plan your accommodation early. Students in Ireland have many accommodation options available to them including long-term hostels, home stays and community accommodation – the cost will depend upon both location and type. Prices typically range between EUR 130 to 180 per week (often inclusive of meals). For longer term stays, renting out an apartment might be worthwhile. Furthermore, to protect your credit score while traveling through Ireland you should open a separate bank account dedicated solely for Irish expenses.
