January 2018 Intake updates!!!

If applying to NCIRL-National College Ireland, deadline for applications and offers for Jan,2018 is 7th November, and visa applications should be submitted to the Irish consular by 15th November, 2017 preferably as the Irish consular maybe closed for 3 weeks for Christmas and New year celebrations.

However, you can differ your admission to September 2018 if you don't have all required documents for visa application. This is better than visa refusal.

Cheers

Its a standard requirement to write the IELTS or PTE before applying for your visa.

But then there is always something called LUCK...

Personally, I've only used PAC as a consultant not as an applicant. However, your option should be something like "other university/college"

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

Thanks

This is a really wonderful thread. Before now I had been wondering why people don't talk about Ireland (studying and working there) as such.

My questions:
Are there full scholarship opportunities for First class graduates to do a Master's degree? If yes/no, which high ranked Universities are good enough?

And if I may ask, is citizenship guaranteed (without stress) by getting married to an Irish?

From what I hv read on here, I don't think they require such. Block account is peculiar with Germany however, but doubt it is necessary with Ireland.

Hello Boss,

What do you mean by Finance degree to Business?

You meant, Finance or Business related degrees?

As a pure Accounting student which Business related msc is good, to have a bright future in Ireland, Apart from Mba, for a 2.2 graduate...

Whao---Honest Questions based on intentions...lol

Individual Universities offer up to 50% off Tuition fees for most taught masters program and a few full sponsored research Masters or PhD programs.
High ranked Universities are quite pricey and have limited scholarship programs available to foreign students exceptions to research programs definitely.

So, If you study 1 year masters degree / level 9 Postgraduate degree program you automatically qualify for 2 years post-study-work permit. If you are lucky enough to get additional 2 years employer-sponsored program to make 4 years ; you can apply for indefinite leave to remain permanently in the Country.

Getting married to an Irish will give you a spousal visa for a number of years not indefinitely... at least not at first issue. (This is from my experience with UK visa and Immigration requirements/procedure)

Maybe someone who got married to an Irish citizen will be able to provide more information.

Cheers

For easier job opportunities for progressive career path, IT / ICT is the way to go first and foremost. However, for background in Business related courses, you should be considering programs such as MBA Cloud computing , MSc Fintech , Data Analytics , Business Analysis, or core Economics.

A better way to determine this is to research on high sorted occupations- Entry level- skills required and degree required.

Ireland does not require a blocked account. You are to present your personal account statement or sponsor's account statement with documents showing proof of relationship between yourself and your sponsor amongst other documents required.

Permission to reside in the State on the basis of marriage to an Irish national. Marriage to an Irish national does not confer an automatic right of residence in the State. A non EEA national who wishes to reside in the State on the basis of their marriage to an Irish national must make an application for permission to remain in the State.

Permission to reside in the State on the basis of civil partnership with an Irish national

The Civil Partnership and Certain Rights and Obligations of Cohabitants Act 2010 entered into force on 13 January 2011. The immigration changes arising from this Act can be viewed from the following link;
