Can an international student get a post-study work visa to look for work after completing 1 year MBA in Ireland?

Yes, you get a post-study work visa, which is also called a 1G Stamp Visa. It is a graduate visa that allows you to work part-time without restrictions while still looking for full-time jobs.

When you come to Ireland, you will get a Stamp 2 student visa. Depending on your course, you may need to renew this visa.

Upon completion of your course, you will be eligible to apply for the Stamp 1G Visa, which is 1 year for Level 8 courses and 2 years for Level 9 courses.

You have to renew the visa for those years. Once you get a job or your visa is sponsored by a company, you will get Visa Stamp 1 in which you must meet the criteria for the same and stay on that stamp for a minimum of 21 months to be eligible to apply for the Visa Stamp Four .

Ireland, mainly Dublin, is a melting pot of different nationalities. The Irish are the kindest and warmest people at heart. Then the stay here will be great.

The ease of getting the PR actually depends on the stream you choose. I suggest you search for your Masters according to your interests first.

In Ireland, the way to advance towards obtaining permanent residence (PR) or Irish citizenship is through STAMPS. Each stamp in your passport defines the things you can do and the things you cannot do while you are here.

In Ireland, the way to advance towards obtaining permanent residence (PR) or Irish citizenship is through STAMPS. Each stamp in your passport defines the things you can do and the things you cannot do while you are here.

  1. Stamp 2: You get this stamp once you register with the GNIB Office. This stamp is issued for 1 year as a student. You have the right to work 20 hours during university and 40 hours during vacations.
  2. 1G Seal - Once you graduate, you will receive the 1G Seal for 2 years. It entitles you to seek full-time jobs for the next 2 years, as by taking a Level 9/10 course in Ireland, you are given the option to stay behind for 2 years.
  3. Stamp 1: It is considered a work permit. It is issued if your employer sponsors your work visa. It is issued for 2 years, but you cannot change employers during the first year of your employment.
  4. Stamp 4: You can take a job whenever you want. You can also access state money and establish a business.
  5. Stamp 5: This stamp entitles you to stay in Ireland for as long as you want without any conditions. This is valid until your passport expires. This is considered a permanent residence permit.
  6. Stamp 6 - this is where you get Irish citizenship :)

I strongly suggest that you check the INIS website for more information on registration stamps and the list of critical skilled jobs as it changes the duration of the above stamps depending on the stream you are working on.

I hope this helps.

There are no two ways to do it: it will be narrow.

It depends on where you are going in Ireland and local rental costs. Look to Ireland's Number One Property Website | Daft.ie is really useful and has a section for shared flats / houses.

The minimum wage is € 10 per hour. So a job in a store could pay for this. BUT these are pandemic times and many people are looking for these jobs as more and more stores close.

I worked as a house cleaner when I was a student. No taxes, well paid for not much effort (if you worked for old ladies who kept the house clean anyway and needed help vacuuming and cleaning windows). I also worked in stores, hospital and office kitchens, did gardening, babysitting, etc. And I worked in factories on the mainland in the summer. You may be able to improvise some jobs, but, and it's a big but, there will be fewer opportunities due to the pandemic. The thing about sharing accommodation is that you might hear about opportunities that you might not otherwise know about, if you share with others in the same boat as you. Your university / student union will have information, including the really important How not to get scammed:

Student accommodation in Dublin - houses, flats, apartments, student accommodation in Dublin. Search student houses, houses and flats on Studentpad! Https://www.ucdaccommodationpad.ie/Accommodation

If you have a particular interest, you will find a web forum for that interest, and the Irish tend to be quite good at sharing information.

Do your research and you will have a much better idea.

I came to Ireland as an international student, now I am a resident. It depends a lot on your financial situation. Most students live in overcrowded and overrated residences (there are alternatives depending on how much you can $ pend). Where it is? The minimum wage in Ireland is the highest in the euro zone, which means that things will cost you a little more than in other capitals like Paris (yes, Dublin is more expensive than Paris in general and according to some indexes, it is even more expensive than London, but remember.

There are always job openings everywhere, there are great apps for that, you can officially work 40 hours only during the summer, but hey, who said babysitting after your part-time job and school will land you in jail? The Irish are very laid back and, for example, they do not usually consider childhood illegal in winter. I was a babysitter for over a year and earned 12.50 an hour and all the children I was looking after were from my neighborhood. One was telling the other about that responsible Brazilian who lives there and boy, the Irish tend to have more than one child and they are extremely charming and polite. GENERALLY. That is not illegal at all, I was studying, working part-time in the morning in a government. Instance (€ 80 per day) then after school I would take care of the children….

Why should Indians study in Ireland?

I cannot speak for a large number of (albeit small) Indian student population in Ireland, but I can give you the reasons why I studied my Masters in Computer Science at University College Dublin, Ireland.

  2. High ranking universities. UCD ranks consistently high in the QS World University Rankings. It is a privilege to graduate from the top 1% of a world university.
  3. Costs Ireland's universities have relatively lower costs than any other English-speaking university. In addition, one-year teachers drastically reduce the cost of living, although living in Dublin, Ireland is expensive.
  4. People. I love the Irish. They are the friendliest people I have ever met on earth. I am indebted to the greatness and generosity you showed during my stay in Ireland. Read Saransh Agarwal's answer to How welcoming are the Irish people to Indians?
  5. Virgin field. I fell in love with the beautiful Irish countryside, on the edge of Europe and the Atlantic Ocean. I know there are beautiful places than Ireland, but it is a unique experience to drive along the Atlantic Coastal Route!
  6. Climate. I like cold weather and fresh air. The Irish climate is neither extremely cold nor hot. The only thing I hate is the strong winds. Read Saransh Agarwal's response to What strikes first-time visitors as something special or unusual when they arrive in Dublin, Ireland?
  7. Diverse. I would have frowned if I had told the Indians that I like Irish food. I miss fresh baked goods, Irish cuisine (especially breakfast), and tea (Barry's tea is better than everything). Read more about my love for Barry's: Got my Irish cuppa '

There can be many negatives: Ireland is expensive, lack of growth, medical care, and much more. But no country is perfect. Ireland (still) tops the table for quality of life, reputation and ease of doing business.

While many Indian students I met were only interested in getting a job, obtaining a residence permit and 'settling down', there is much more to do. I know I may not have achieved job growth or financial success compared to my peers (especially one in the US), but life is too short to regret it and I am very happy where I am today with all the experiences .

I am an international student in Ireland. I have many friends who are international students. It really depends on the field. This sort of thing is a YMMV situation (your mileage may vary).

Even then, I know someone who works in IT and had trouble finding work in Ireland and was turned down by the big companies but was eventually hired but was the first non-EU citizen to work for their company.

I also know someone who has a master's degree in the business field and can't find a job. She has been rejected by large multinational companies after telling them she needed sponsorship after her graduate work visa expired. Business degrees are often very broad and it is difficult to find work.

Larger companies are more likely to hire than smaller companies because they may have the budget to pay for a work visa. Students obtain a 12-month work visa after graduation to find work, but many students have trouble finding work. Obtaining a work visa is difficult because there are strict salary requirements.

As in any job market, your ability to find a job would depend on your title, work experience, and additional skills that you can offer your prospective employer.
If you present yourself well and have more than the rest of the candidates, you will get the position. If you need a work permit, it is very difficult to get it because the rules are very strict, but if you do not need it, nothing prevents you from entering. The competition is usually fair.

It does not work in the same way as in Australia, New Zealand, or Canada. In Ireland, just because you graduated from a university / college in Ireland, you are not eligible for an equivalent of a PR. First, there is no public relations in Ireland. What people consider equivalent is a Stamp4 visa with no work restriction. To be eligible for Stamp4, you must have held a work permit for Ireland (2 years for the critical work permit and 3 or 4 years for the general work permit). Then in the third or fifth year, when you have been on the work permit, you renew your visa and get a stamp4. After a few years on a stamp

After a few years with a stamp4, you can apply for Irish citizenship or get a stamp5 or a longer valid visa.

Simply put, there are no public relations shortcuts in Ireland. Actually, there is no public relations concept in Ireland.

Canada: Canada has introduced a program called SPP for Indian and Chinese students. If you study at SPP listed institutions in Canada, you are eligible for an open and unconditional work permit. If your course duration is 1 year, you get a 1-year work permit and if your course duration is 2 years, you will get a 3-year work permit.

USA: Offers OPT (Optional Practical Training) to students who have completed their studies in the USA at the bachelor's or master's level. This can be from 17 to 24 months depending on the program they have studied. The condition is that you must work in a field that is relevant to your

Australia: If you study for a minimum of 2 years at a government recognized institute (CRICOS), you are eligible to apply for a 2-year open work permit

NZ and IRELAND: Students studying at level 7 or higher (graduate or postgraduate), after 1 year of studies, get a 1-year work search visa, if they get employment in their field of study, they can get a work permit of up to 3 years.

Most European countries offer the option of staying behind for 6 to 12 months after studies, and if the student gets a confirmed full-time job, they can stay in that country for a long time.

Yes, for students from outside the EU it is a bit difficult to get a job in Ireland. The work scene is not that of the United States, where almost everyone ends up with a job after school. The best way to get a job in Ireland is to get a few years of relevant experience from your country before coming here for your studies.

As a non-EU student, you must obtain a 2-year postgraduate visa to search for work. The IT and IT industry is strong in Ireland.

I can't say you'll get a job! But you will have a strong profile for a job. I have seen many non-EU students, who have had 2-3 years or more of experience, get jobs immediately after their master's degree.

I came home right after completing my master's degree. However, upon graduation from Trinity, you will have no trouble finding work anywhere. These are large educational institutions with a long history of famous scientists from this prestigious school.
