Please how easy is it to get a job in Ireland, be it part time or full time if I were doing my studies there compared to UK, Australia or Canada.

How much is rent for a studio or one bed in Dublin? I believe jobs will be plenty there, it being the capital.

Is it possible residing outskirts of Dublin and working in Dublin?

What is transport like in and out of Dublin? Is it easily accessible and cheap? Rent should be cheaper outside Dublin in other states.

Getting jobs anywhere irrespective of the country totally depends on your personality, skills and diligence.

Republic of Ireland has Facebook, Google, PayPal headquarters, hundreds of hotels, cafe's restaurants , Hospitals to mention a few. Getting any job should not be too difficult especially for casual jobs. However, for permanent career focused jobs- this involves strategic planning, having relevant degree but more importantly highly sorted skills.

I currently live in Nigeria so I won't be able to discuss extensively on transportation within and outside DUBLIN. Dublin is easily accessible via, buses, trains and trams.

Like all capital/MAJOR cities-e.g London, Abuja/Lagos , New york etc; accommodation will cost relatively higher as compared to smaller cities.

Any Nairalander living in Ireland should please contribute to this ....

*** Living costs in Limerick, Cork, Galway for 2017 was placed at EUR 7,000 for visa processing and EUR 11,000 for Dublin...
If that helps.

Cheers

Hi,
ICaSNg

Can you explain more on scholarships?
i checked out some,it was stated to be taken in Ireland, i graduated with 2.2,which of the test will back me up strongly in other to get Business related graduate scholarship(msc) ...
Thanks

Ireland do not require any text and the cut off for scholarship is 2.1. But you can contact the school directly for financial based scholarship. Its better to apply directly to schools and constantly email them for any information. Pls don't pay any agent to help you secure admission, you can do it alone.

It would be really nice if we can get current students in Ireland to share their experience so far smiley
Re: GENERAL Irish (student)visa & Work Permit-New THREAD*** by timoddy(m): 3:12am On Oct 13
Well for computer students, National College of Ireland (NCI) is ur best bet...its located in the city centre and they give scholarships. Well I stay on campus soo its not stressful for me..but its very expensive to stay on campus... Getting an accommodation outside is stressful..very stressful!!!!!! U'll have to switch from one hostel to another before u get a permanent place to stay especially in DUBLIN..

Contact university of limerick. Though most of their courses cut off is 2.1, they accept 2.2 depending on individual cases. Or you can apply to institute of technologies outside Dublin

I think its your personal decision to make. However, you can decide better by where you see yourself in the next 5 years.
Or by what your plan is as regards career path and future aspirations?

Based on your question however, with a degree in sociology or political science- Philosophy / Business Psychology/ IT may be a masters alternative . However, for IT related courses, you need an edge to compete with other hardcore qualified IT graduates e.g developing your programming or database or web /software development skills to exceptional levels.

There are foundation programs available for students interested in studying Nursing in Ireland; However, her not having O-level background in science related courses may pose as a challenge as students need to satisfy exceptional science-related O-level results before applying for the foundation/pre-bachelors program- If she however has exceptional O-Level results she may try applying.

Another challenge is the financial aspect, Tuition fees for a Nursing degree is at least EUR 17,000 per year and duration of a bachelor honors degree in IRELAND is 4 years.

Minimum wage for 2017 is EUR 9.25 .
Its worthwhile to mention not all job roles will pay the above per hour--- You're to expect at least EUR 7 to 8.50 per hour depending on your location.
Definitely YES... A student is entitled to 20 hours per week for work during term-period and as much as 40 - 50 HOURS or more during holidays/ summer.

Exception however applies to some courses or program.
For example, DIT has a MSc in Sustainable development- This course involves unpaid 16 hours internship per week in a company specified by your University. This means you have limited hours left per week for a paid casual/ part-time job.
