Employment of International Graduates in Ireland

Guidelines for Employers and International Students

This information leaflet will be of interest to non-EEA graduates of Irish Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) who may be exploring the possibility of staying on in Ireland to work for some time after their studies.

The leaflet will also be of relevance to Irish based employers who wish to understand the different schemes that allow for the employment of non-EEA graduates.

If you are a citizen of an EU member state or if you are from Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Switzerland you are already legally entitled to work in Ireland and do not need any additional permission.

We wish to further acknowledge the funding support received from the Citizens Information Board towards the production of the leaflet.

Note: The period for the Graduate Employment Scheme was recently extended from 6 to 12 months, with effect from 28th October 2010.
