Found it difficult to understand the information regarding the employment of International Students?
Check out our "user friendly" version, making it easier for you.
The Irish Council for International Students (ICOS) has recently published
Guidelines for Employers and International Students. This information
leaflet will be of interest to non-EEA graduates of Irish Higher Education
Institutions (HEIs) who may be exploring the possibility of staying on in Ireland
to work for some time after their studies.
Each year many of our students are required to participate in a work placement, either at home or abroad for a period of between 12 weeks to 9 months in duration, depending on the course they are undertaking.
This experience is invaluable to the students as it allows them to gain real practical hands on work knowledge. It is also valuable to the employers as it offers them the opportunity to grow solid communication lines between the Institute, its Academic, Management and Support Staff so that all fully understand the needs and requirements of each other, but also to interact with the current students and potentially future employees.
The current Work Placement - A Best Practice Guide for Employers, produced by AHECS (Association of Higher Education Career Services) details benefits to all parties undertaking placement of students. AHECS also produce a Work Placement - A Best Practice Guide for Students, which might be interested to you.
At WIT our Academic staff have the responsibility for the placement of their students and a list of the courses currently offering work placement and the contact names, telephone numbers, email addresses is noted below.
