Travelling and Holidays
Our students sometimes take the opportunity to travel around Ireland and Europe while they're with us. This is absolutely no problem and we encourage it particularly for our long stay students.
Students can take holidays as long as GCI is notified 2 weeks prior to the travelling date. A holiday request must be filled out together with any other relevant information, such as flights, etc. Please ask at reception for a holiday request form.
Ireland has 4 main airports, Dublin, Shannon, Cork and Knock: aerlingus.com, Ryanair.ie. Make sure you have your correct visas and passport documentation. Your passport should be valid for more than 6 months after arrival. For students from outside the EAA please log onto http://www.inis.gov.ie to see if you need a visa to come to Ireland.
In case of non-EEA students, their holidays must be decided prior to their arrival. Students on specific courses, examination preparation, foundation, etc cannot take leave during their programme.
