Medical Insurance is an insurance policy against loss by illness or bodily injury. Medical Insurance provides coverage for visits to the doctor or emergency room, hospital stays and other medical expenses.
All Non EEA Students are required to have private medical insurance when coming to and residing in Ireland for the purpose of study. Student can get insurance either in Ireland or in their own country. It is important to make sure that the policy purchased will be acceptable to the Department of Immigration in Ireland. Students can purchase Insurance directly from the school at the cost of €100 for one year.
Citas College will then organise medical insurance which is acceptable to the Department of Immigration. Our current policy provider is O’Driscoll O’Neil – the most respected student medical insurance provider in Ireland.
Students from EU countries should bring a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) from their country in order to avail of the same services as Irish people under the public health scheme.
CITAS College can organize accommodation for arriving students.
Students can stay for any duration they wish. Some students choose to stay for a short period until they find their own accommodation.

You can also display your own notice on The Student Notice Board if you would like to find other students to share accommodation with. The student care team would also be happy to help in this regard.
