WHO WE ARE
The Irish Council for International Students (ICOS) is a members based organisation which seeks to promote good policy in international education, build capacity amongst its members, and advocate on behalf of international students to ensure that their voices are heard and their rights are respected.
As the representative voice for international students in Ireland, ICOS seeks to promote the benefits which international students bring, not only to the Irish higher education system, but also to Irish society as a whole. We believe that all international students, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation should be treated with respect and dignity. Through our information and advocacy work we try to assist students in difficulty, help them to access their rights, and make representation on their behalf at government policy level.
