The process for receiving your English Work-Study Visa is as follows

  1. Full payment is made for your course.
  2. We will issue you with a letter of invitation. You must present this to the Irish immigration authorities when you enter Ireland.
  3. You must hold a valid passport for at least 6 months after your course has finished.
  4. You must have medical insurance for 1 year. We can provide this for you if you wish.
  5. You have to provide bank statements to show evidence of how you will support your stay.
  6. You must provide documentation of your work & study history.

If you are refused a study visa you will get a full refund of fees less €200 to cover administration costs.

To ensure we deliver a quality product we have limited spaces on this programme.  We limit numbers to ensure we have a good nationality and cultural mix.
