One of the most difficult elements of studying and traveling abroad is simply being able to afford it - much of the time, visa and work regulations in the host country simply do not allow for students to work legally. Things are different for students on a special program administered by BUNAC, the British Universities North America Club. Through BUNAC’s Work in the UK program, you can become a part of everyday UK life and experience first-hand the UK’s amazing blend of old and new cultures. As a program participant, you are able to take almost any type of job, anywhere in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland for just a summer or up to six months. Using program leads or personal contacts, participants work in a wide variety of jobs including career-related or study-related positions ranging from bartender to banker, office temp to theater usher.

Working in Ireland

Eu/EEA nationals have the same entitlement to take up employment in Ireland as that of Irish person. Non-EU/EEA students are entitled to work up to 20 hours per week and full time during holidays. However once your student visa runs out, the entitlement to take up employment in Ireland ceases. Please note that the (EEA) The European Economic Area consists of the Member States of the European Union together with Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein.

Citizens of countries which are not part of the European Economic Area (EEA - see below) who wish to stay in Ireland for longer than 3 months for work, study or other reasons must seek permission to remain from the Department of Justice through the Garda National Immigration Bureau (GNIB) or their local Garda station.

Garda National Immigration Bureau
13-14 Burgh Quay
Dublin 2
Tel: 00 353 1 666 9100

These citizens will also require a re-entry visa if they wish to leave Ireland and return. This can be obtained from the Visa Office of the Department of Foreign Affairs at 13-14 Burgh Quay, Dublin 2.

International Students and Employment:
Employment Regulations on the employment of students from countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) changed in spring 2001, when the Minister for Justice Equality and Law Reform announced that individuals with permission to remain in Ireland as students would now be entitled to take up 'casual' paid employment of up to 20 hours a week during term/ semester time and full-time during university/ college vacations. When a student takes up part-time work on this basis, a work permit is not required, but potential employers will want to satisfy themselves that the person applying for part-time work is legally resident in Ireland as a student. Intending students are still required to satisfy the Irish authorities in advance, when applying for an entry visa, that they have sufficient funds for their period of study, without recourse to casual work in Ireland. Also, the right to work on this basis ceases automatically at the completion of the student's academic course. For further information, see www.justice.ie.
