For Inbound Students: 

As part of the Irish Higher Education sector response, Munster Technological University (MTU) is committed to welcoming, supporting and meeting the needs of students and postgraduate researchers displaced from Ukraine who are seeking to access higher education. 

This response is being led by the Department of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science (DFHERIS) on behalf of the higher education (HE) sector in Ireland. 


The National Student and Researcher Helpdesk (NSR): 
The Helpdesk seeks to help displaced Ukrainian students and researchers who are covered by the EU’s Temporary Protection Directive to explore suitable study options in the Irish education and training system for the next academic year which will commence in September 2022, and to explore suitable options for continuation of research activity. 


The Helpdesk will guide students and researchers in relation to academic options in Ireland e.g., requirements for applications, English language requirements, student finance, funding, fees and grants.


The NSR can be contacted by email on NSRHelpdesk@mu.ie  or via phone on +353 (0)1 474 7788. 


MTU will work closely with the newly established National Student & Researcher Helpdesk team in assisting displaced students and researchers from Ukraine who wish to study at MTU in the admissions process.
