General Information

Ireland is an English-speaking country with excellent transport links to the rest of Europe, and a land border with the UK at Northern Ireland. The climate is mild and the country has a reputation for hospitality and friendliness. International students are warmly welcomed.

Ireland has an excellent education system and its top universities hold world-class reputations. Ireland’s economic expansion as part of its entry into the Euro has seen massive investment in academic research and some of the best and most modern educational facilities in Europe.

The Application Process

Ireland does not have a centralized admissions process for overseas students, therefore you will need to apply on an individual basis to each institution you are interested in. As well as your academic record, most universities will require you to prepare a personal statement and submit academic or work references. The personal statement is the most important part of the application as it allows you to stand out from the crowd. If you are not certain of the best practices in drafting a strong personal statement you should seek professional advice.

How much will it cost?

Average tuition fees are about €25,000 per year and average living expenses are about €10,000 per year. Each university has it own requirements and fee structure. Fees vary from institute to institute and some programs including an MBA have higher fees.

Funding, Scholarships and Loans

Scholarships, grants, and bursaries are available for international students at the undergraduate and postgraduate level. Such awards are determined by the individual institutions and are awarded based on an overall assessment of a candidate. It’s important that you prepare a strong application to maximize your chances of being awarded part of full funding for your study in Ireland.

Students from India can get education loans from state banks for up to Rs.2.5 Million. Security of up to 100% of the loan amount will be needed and the repayment period varies from 5-7 years. Please contact individual banks for more information.

Student Employment

Students are permitted to work part time while studying and can often cover their living expenses. Graduates have the option to stay in Ireland after they have completed their studies and may seek employment under the Irish work permit scheme. Do keep in mind though that getting jobs in Ireland as a non-EU citizen may not be easy due to the size of the economy.
