Ireland has started to become one of the most popular study abroad destinations in Europe. Its universities offer first-rate education in a traditional, yet modern setting. Thousands of study programs at over two dozen schools attract international students from around the world.

Work while you studys

Ireland permits students to work for 20 hours out of each week during scholarly meetings and 40 hours of the week during the long stretches of May, June, July, August, and mid-December to mid-January. After the completion of your studies, you can remain back to look for work under the Irish Third Level Graduate Scheme.


Ireland is a safe and tolerant place to live and ranks consistently in the world’s Top 20 countries for quality of life, peace and human development. It’s also a young country, with a third of the population under 25 years old. Study in Ireland and you’ll join more than 35,000 international students from 161 countries who love where they live.


Studying in Ireland can give you a great start to a successful career. Ireland ranks highly for quality of education – education that meets the needs of a competitive economy, plus knowledge transfer between universities and international companies. It’s also a lot of fun.
