    Student from the Republic of Ireland un-certifiable as Dublin is listed as part of the UK.

    Over my dead body.

    Ooops, I can imagine that most people outside the UK and Ireland wouldn't understand just how contentious that could be.

    If you email headquarters I'm sure they can sort it out.

    Just got off the phone with Paul Montgomery (the agency's go-to guy for international business) and he is very aware of the situation. He has pointed out the implied insult, to the department who manage and maintain the company website as well as senior management, of including Eire as part of the UK. The required change will be made and the original mistake -- the result of poor proofing of third-party software -- is sincerely regretted.

    Thanks for the help and info Steve. I will try and certify the student in a week or so when Ireland is back on the map.
