Hi, I finished my +2 in the year 2009 and joined a collage for getting a diploma in information technology of 3 years on my friends reference, thinking that it will be good for my future but i was not at all interested in it, as a result i ended up having 5 supplimenteries. So technically i have a 4 year gap. I want to apply for study visa in some easy course having good value in future. Also i did my IELTS with 6.5 overall bands not less then 5.5 in any section. Am i eligible for getting a student visa?

the Irish Embassy demands the reason of the GAP and untill you can prove that you have a geniune intention for studies you wont get the visa, hence better provide the proper reasons of gap with explanation and your further interest in Ireland Studies.

when you choose the institutes better to choose public/Govt institutes rather private colleges as irish embassy will be more happy to see your interest in quality institutes.
