The period young people in the direct provision system must spend in the Irish education system to qualifty for a grant to study at third level has been reduced from five years to three years, the Government has announced.

The Pilot Student Support Scheme was first launched in 2015 but was only open to students who had been studying in an Irish school for at least five years.

The revised scheme, which opens on the eve of the Leaving Cert exams, will offer grants for the 2019/20 academic year and is available to students who have spent three years in an Irish school and have applied for asylum, subsidiary protection or leave to remain in Ireland.

The Department of Education said the scheme had been altered following a review which found that the requirement that students spend at least five years in an Irish school in order to qualify was “too restrictive”.

The three year criteria brings the Government support scheme in line with the SUSI (Student Universal Support Ireland) grant residence requirement of three years.

Just six students out of 59 have been granted support under the pilot scheme in the past three years, according to the Irish Refugee Council, which had noted the “restrictive nature” of the eligibility criteria.

Live here, pay taxes all your life but earn a little over the threshold: go do one. Uni is out of the question for many of us financially.
Is it not free this great education? I someone telling me fibs?

It's all part of the Liberal ideology that says a person native and to the manor born has no special rights in their own country. A completely random foreigner has just as much rights as the native. In effect, nations no longer exist. Natives no longer exist. We are all Rootless Cosmopolitan Man. (Oh sorry - "man" is such a sexist crime - I mean "post human sexless being."
post human sexless beings? No. Sex is a big part of our future dystopia.
The sex trafficking trade is very lucrative. Also, gay people tend to buy a lot of products.
They'd probably just love it if there were a bigger gay market to target.

And the depraved psychopaths that rule over us always require lawless havens where they can express their sexual depravity
on the children of the poor

Look at all the shitholes created by capitalism where poverty stricken locals have little alternative but to sell themselves and their kids
for sex to all the rich westerners that go on holidays there. Do you believe there is actually no design to this order?

Finally some good news.
Hi Yazmina, you trolling? That post comes across as trollish, though, I’ve seen posts of yours that were anything but trollish, trolls are normally very consistent.

Can you explain why the Irish should give these charlatans very expensive pieces of paper to then be used to gain a foothold in our society and destroy us from within our public institutions?
