Mumbai, 9th October, 2019: Ireland has a long history of welcoming international students and in recent years it has become a quality education destination; as it renders a worthwhile future that assures an established career for all students. Popular for its integrated education which is designed in a way that basic fundamentals are not missed out while learning the advanced concepts and equipping students with both theoretical and practical knowledge, all of Ireland’s universities are ranked in the top 5% globally.

Mr. Barry O’Driscoll, Senior Education Adviser, India – Education in Ireland quotes, “India has been an influential market in terms of both trade and international students export for Ireland. Many students who aspire for receiving higher-education in foreign countries are now being aware of Ireland providing globally recognized degrees & courses, benefits of working part-time and a 24 month stay back option has contributed to the rising the education exports.”

In the recent years the most popular courses in Ireland have included mechanical engineering, electronic engineering, biotechnology, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, data analytics, cyber security, accounting / finance and MBA. Also there is a notable increased level of interest in courses such as media, design, arts, social sciences, hospitality and hotel management.

One of the major reasons why Indian students are heading to Ireland is a host of scholarships that are offered by education institutions. Today, over 200 scholarships are available for aspiring Indian students at higher level either undergraduate or postgraduate studies.

For students who are determined to polish their skills and grow both, professionally and personally, Education in Ireland is organizing educational fairs wherein globally recognized Institutes from Ireland will speak on a variety courses, opportunities and scholarships that are available coming from wide range of Irish sources. The fairs will be conducted in Mumbai at The St. Regis Hotel on 20th October from 12 pm to 5 pm wherein 20 Irish Institutes will be present at the fair to address, discuss, respond to queries, speak about programmes available, intakes, offer acceptance, campus life, accommodation, international student support, culture and more.

Other than Mumbai Education in Ireland fairs will also be organized in Pune, Bangalore, Coimbatore & Chennai.

“The annual fairs are designed for the benefit of the student to access end-to-end education market in Ireland without bearing any financial risk or investment of time. In addition to meeting the institutions, the qualified students can also get a broader percept on how education in Ireland takes place with its kind of courses, the job opportunities given post studies and various scholarship opportunities. I suggest parents and students should visit the Education in Ireland fairs to find out more!” adds Mr. O’Driscroll who will be present at the fairs to have face-to-face interaction with the students.

A key advantage of studying in Ireland is that students can avail of up to two years ‘stay-back’ option after completing their course, at postgraduate level. This guarantees students the opportunity to remain in Ireland for a period of one year to seek employment in dynamic sectors such as ICT, biopharma, engineering, medical devices, food science and financial services. The possibility of gaining valuable post-study work experience, makes Ireland a very compelling option for the Indian students. With over 1,000 multinationals based in Ireland, the country offers exciting career opportunities for talented graduates.

India has always invested in education with a strong sense of the ROI- which in simple terms means the career boost against their graduation. In this matter Ireland has time and again proved its track record and has seen a notable growth of 86% in international student exports in Ireland.

The country also offers a buzzing, multicultural society where students will certainly find the highest of education standards and warmest of welcomes and is well known as being a safe, welcoming society.
