International Students

Why study in Ireland? 

Ireland has a well earned international reputation for high quality education. Along with a long heritage of tailoring, this makes Ireland an idea location to specialise in this area. 

Based in Dublin city centre, the National Tailoring Academy offers the best of all worlds, a vibrant, exciting city location but still less than an hours travel from beautiful country locations that our island of Ireland is famous four.  Our English speaking country is friendly, exciting to explore and an excellent gateway to the rest of Europe. Join the 35,000  international students from over 161 countries currently choosing Ireland as a place to learn and grow.

Is there on campus accommodation at the National Tailoring Academy?

There is no campus accommodation at the National Tailoring Academy but upon acceptance we can recommend local accommodation options and put you in touch with other students attending the course who are also moving to Dublin to attend the National Tailoring Academy. 

Do I need a visa to study at the National Tailoring Academy?

Students from the EU/EEA (that is, the 27 EU member states member states and Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) do not require a student visa to study in Ireland. Citizens of certain countries who wish to pursue a course of study in Ireland must apply for a visa to enter Ireland before they travel here. 

Can I work whilst undertaking the CPD Diploma at the National Tailoring Academy?

Students from countries outside the EU/EEA who are registered as full-time students with the Garda Siochana are permitted to work part-time in Ireland (up to a maximum of 20 hours a week and full-time during vacation periods) to support themselves. As our diploma is an intensive, full-time, course, students who choose to work while attending are still expected to complete the full 40hours per week required to complete the diploma and no allowances will be made for taking time off to work. 

Will my CPD Diploma be recognised internationally?

Our Diploma is a level 7 qualification, accredited by the Dublin Institute of Technology and fully recognised internationally.
