University Guardianship

Someone you can rely on for peace of mind

University Guardianship

A guardian is not always the first thing you consider for a university student even though international students under 18 are usually required to have a designated guardian. As international students are somewhat unfamiliar with Irish laws and customs, a selected guardian for students under 18 is increasingly requested by Universities in Ireland. It can be challenging and daunting to move to a strange new country and be without support. When Family members are unavailable, it's nice to know you have someone to rely on. For non-EEA students who need to register with immigration authorities, they will also need a guardian present. At the same time, we know that university students may not feel they need any help. With that in mind we offer a non intrusive approach while always being there to give support when needed and someone you can rely on for peace of mind.
