The work you complete may be related to a problem identified by your employer as being of particular interest to their business.

Funding – International Students

Many International students studying in Ireland are sponsored by their own government or through other international scholarship programmes. In most cases applications should be made through the Ministry of Education in the student's home country. 

The Irish Council for International Students administers Study Fellowships under the Irish Aid Programmes for students for Priority Aid Countries. Please refer to for further information. International students are also advised to refer to the Website of the International Education Board Ireland, which gives information on scholarship sources.
