Health Insurance

Non-EU students must have private health insurance for Immigration purposes. If you require a study visa, you will need to submit private health insurance details with your visa application.  (The health insurance document must be written in English).

In addition to medical insurance being a visa and immigration requirement, the cost of Healthcare in Ireland is high. A one night stay in hospital can cost in excess of €1200. You need private medical insurance to cover any emergency situation where you might need to be hospitalised or require access to private consultations.
