I recently received offer from TU Dublin for funded PhD ( fee + maintenance ). I was going through financial requirements for student visa application for non-EEA students. It is bit unclear on how much money we have to show. In website its written as

Scholarship Students

In addition students in receipt of a scholarship which either part funds or fully funds both their course fees and living costs must provide a letter, issued to them by the relevant organisation confirming they are the recipient of a scholarship.

Can some one please clarify what's above sentence means ? Does it mean they are considering Scholarship students as another category like visa required and not required students ? Or scholarship students have to show 7000£ + letter specifying they have scholarship ?

    The sentence does not mention a sum of money. Where does the 7,000 figure come from? Commented Jun 8, 2020 at 21:18

  • @Richard Beasley It’s in the link in the OP’s question: “students from Visa required countries are required to demonstrate that they have access to €7,000 as part of their Visa application”

  • The link mentions € 7000, not £ 7000. The official currency in the Republic of Ireland is the Euro, not the Pound.

This text says nothing about another class of visa.

It says only that if an applicant for a student visa has or will receive a scholarship for partial or full support of their studies and/or living expenses, then the applicant must provide (to the Irish immigration authorities, as part of their visa application) a letter from the "relevant organization," i.e., the college or university, confirming the scholarship.

  • Thanks for the reply. it starts with "In addition" , So does it mean visa required student has to provide financial evidence of £7000 ( Please ref link in question ) and scholarship letter ? ( Its not clear from the given description)

  • The page linked in your question says non-EEA students from visa-required countries undertaking a course of study in Ireland must show access to €7,000. I think that applies to you, and you must demonstrate that the funds available to you (cash or available accounts combined with the amount awarded in the scholarship letter) total €7,000. I would, however, ask TU Dublin at their financial air or international student office; they will surely have addressed this issue before. Commented Jun 8, 2020 at 23:37
