    Updated on: 06 Sep 2023 6 min read

    Since 2013, the number of international students going to Ireland for higher education has jumped by 45%! It’s taken the total number of non-EEA students studying full-time to 18,500.

    Why Is Ireland Becoming So Popular For Studies Abroad? 

    Besides being part of the European Union, there are no language barriers, and it has a generous post-study work policy. After a bachelor’s/master’s degree, known as Level 8 in Ireland, a student from India can use the Third Level Graduate Scheme to stay for up to 24 months to look for a job.

    How Can You Get a Permanent Resident Visa in Ireland? 

    The path to permanent residency in Ireland begins with the General Employment Permit. If you have the permit and have been living in the country for 5 years, you apply for a permanent visa. 
    A quicker method is the Critical Skills Employment Permit, which was previously called Green Card. It is given to techies like ICT professionals and engineers. Holders of this permit can apply for PR in 2 years. 

    Education Loan For Ireland: The Last (But Crucial) Step to Applying For Visa

    In most countries, you first get the student visa and then you pay the college tuition. In Ireland, the process is reversed. You need to pay the course fee first and only then can you apply for a valid study visa. Most banks are not aware of this pre-visa disbursement clause, which leaves you in a fix. 

    How do you apply for a student visa, if you don’t have the funds to pay the university? It’s here GyanDhan comes to your aid. 
    We make sure that a) your lender is aware of the policy in Ireland and b) the loan is approved and disbursed as soon as possible to give you sufficient time to apply for the visa!
    Lastly, we highly recommend taking a free admission counselling session before applying. We'll not only give your recommendation on the best education loans for MS in Ireland or an MBA, but also make the process of Ireland study visa hassle-free.
