Irish Council for International Students
The Irish Council for International Students (ICOS) has today released its pre-election manifesto and has warned that action must be taken by the incoming government to ensure that Ireland’s place as a popular destination for international students is sustained.
ICOS is seeking a suitable volunteer to carry out the role of Chair of the Finance & Governance Committee. The Finance & Governance Committee (the committee) is a sub-committee of the ICOS board of directors and the committee reports to the board, under the delegated powers assigned by a terms of reference.
ICOS has been alerted that some students are being contacted by a person pretending to be an immigration officer. The scammer claims he is ringing students in relation to their immigration permission and demands a payment be made over the phone.
