We have a large community of international students here at Southampton Solent University and understand that the process of relocating to a new country can be challenging. Students coming from Ireland can find a range of advice about obtaining a visa and studying in the UK right here on the Solent website.
For more specific advice about coming from Ireland to study, please see the information below. Alternatively, you can contact the British Council's Ireland offices or our own international advice team.
As a general guide, we look for qualifications that are equivalent to the British high school A-levels. A portfolio is also required for most of our art and design courses. Students should hold the Leaving Certificate in at least five subjects at Higher Level.
For postgraduate courses, we look for qualifications that are equivalent to the British bachelor's degree.
As an EEA national you do not need to apply for a visa to come and study in the UK.
EU financial support
EU students are entitled to apply for some financial support in the UK: a tuition fee loan and an EU bursary. See our information on EU student funding.
