Students must register with Immigration Authorities in Limerick within 10 days of arrival and provide the necessary documentation. The International Education Division at the University of Limerick will organize an appointment for all study abroad students and details of that appointment will be given during the on-site orientation program.
  • Non-US citizens should contact the Irish consulate to learn about how to apply for student visa for Ireland.
