Study Visa

Applying for a Study Visa


  • Many non-EU students need to apply for a visa to the Embassy of Ireland or the Consulate in their home country. You can find your nearest one here.
  • Students are responsible for arranging your own visas. Visa decisions can take several weeks and even months, so it is important to allow plenty of time for this when planning for your arrival for the start of your course at MTU. Late registration will not be allowed.
  • For complete details of visa requirements, processes and documents required, please visit the Irish Naturalisation & Immigration Service website:
  • The MTU International Office can only provide guidance. It is up to the students to seek the correct information for your own particular situation
  • If you do not require a English language proficency exam for entry to MTU, you may still be required to provide one for visa purposes so please ensure you check visa requirements for your Country

If you are a PhD or Masters by Research student please contact



Registering with Immigration


After you arrival, regardless of whether or not you are arriving from a visa required country, all international visitors staying for more than 90 days are required to register their stay with Immigration for an IRP (Irish Residence Permit).
