Eden College in Dublin has closed with immediate effect. The Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) has put arrangements in place for non-EEA students affected by the closure of Eden college. This information is available on their website

Non-EEA students of Eden college with current valid immigration permission are considered to be on academic holiday until 1st September 2014. There is no immediate threat to a student's immigration permission, however students should start considering their options. The Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service has not made agreements with any other colleges for students to transfer to a new college, and students are advised not to enrol or pay fees for new college courses without contacting the INIS at the new specific email address

Students of Eden college who were completing ACELS accredited English language courses may be able to complete their course with another recognised college. You should contact Marketing English in Ireland on to find out your options. If you contact Marketing English in Ireland you shuould also send an email to the INIS at giving your full details. 

For students studying courses other than English language courses you will be required to get the approval of the INIS before transferring to another college. There is detailed information and contact details for students of FETAC accredited courses and students of Australian Institute of Business accredited courses on the website. 

If you are concerned about your current student immigration status in Ireland you can contact the Crosscare Migrant Project on 01 8732844 or through the email
