Two Weeks Before Arrival

in addition to reading our Student Guide for all Travel Guidance and COVID Protocols, we recommend you make a checklist of the most important things. Planning your language stay in Ireland is an exciting time & a list is a great way to be sure you remember the most important things!

Here's a few things we think are particularly important to remember:

  • Book your language programme at GCI (with course and/or accommodation) & carry with you any relevant documentation sent to you from GCI
  • Take your GCI Online English Test
  • Book Flights to & from Ireland
  • Check Passport & ID card
  • Visa (if applicable)
  • Health insurance/health card
  • Organise your EU Digital Certificate/ Proof of Vaccination or PCR Test
  • Consider how you will be Getting to Galway
