This programme entitles non-EU students to work legally on a part-time basis while taking English classes for 25 weeks and UCC Language Centre can give advice on work availability in the Cork area. Our University has a career advice service.

The immigration permission to attend a 25-week English-language course is for 8 months. This applies to first-time and renewal registrations with effect from 21 January 2016. Existing permissions are not affected. New students attending language courses may be granted permission for a maximum of 3 language courses. This amounts to a total immigration permission of 2 years (3 x 8 months). Students can study for 20 hours per week for 25 weeks and use the remainder of their time to work or holiday.  

  • The student must take a recognised examination at the end of the course (students who do not comply with this requirement willl not be permitted to obtain further immigration permission)
  • Our course is listed on the Interim List of Eligible Programmes (ILEP) as required by INIS (Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service).
  • INIS has published an overview of conditions for language programme students listing immigration requirements for such students.
