Many students help support their studies by working 20 hours per week during semesters and 40 hours per week during vacations. The minimum wage in Ireland is 8.65 Euros per hour and after graduation there are work permit and green card opportunities, which can lead to PR.
The population of the Republic of Ireland is 4.5 million with around 1.5 million living in the capital city, Dublin.
Dublin is a young, vibrant and cosmopolitan city and has been named as Europe’s city of culture. It is a compact city with all modern amenities close at hand and a low crime rate when compared to other major cities around the world.
Irish people have a great love of conversation and a genuine interest in other people. They have become renowned for their friendliness and hospitality. This added to the country’s striking natural beauty contributes to the ease by which international students adapt to the Irish way of life.
As an independent English-speaking country situated on the western edge of Europe, the Republic of Ireland is an increasingly popular destination for students from all over the world.
