Work in Ireland
Whether you are only coming to study in Ireland for your foundation / bridging course - or also planning to go on to study at an Irish university - this is a great place for international students to find rewarding work.
Ireland is regarded as one of the best performing economies in Europe and has a healthy demand for part-time skilled English-speaking workers - ideal for supporting yourself while you study.
Ireland also offers tremendous opportunities for students and graduates alike who wish to further their career prospects by working in the Business & Management, Science & Health and Engineering & Technology sectors.
At DIFC we are pleased to confirm that both the NCUK International Foundation Year (IFY) and NCUK Graduate Diploma programmes have been approved by the Irish Department of Education – which means that DIFC students are legally entitled to work part-time in Ireland.

Non-EU graduates are now eligible for residence in Ireland after 4 years' employment. This new Irish Government policy will be of particular benefit to Chinese students. Non-EU students who have gained a degree in Ireland's universities will be able to obtain 2 more years' student visa, during which period they are allowed to work in Ireland. After 4 years' working, they will be able to obtain long-term right of residence in Ireland.
