Arrangements for Minors

Before arriving in Cork, students under 18 years of age must register with our partner, Godsil Education, to set up a guardianship agreement. It is essential that minors confirm a guardianship arrangement before travelling to Ireland, as it is a legal requirement for all young people under 18 years to have a guardian in the country.

All minor students coming to Cork will receive information and contact details for Godsil Education.
