Why study in Ireland?

Let’s find out why Ireland is a great option for you!

Known for its large expanse of lush green fields and magnificent castles, Ireland is a country that offers you the best of both worlds – the green countryside and a vibrant urban lifestyle. Its world-class institutions, extensive selection of courses, and abundant work opportunities make it an ideal destination for Indian students. A technology hub with many leading companies having their European headquarters here, Ireland will assure you of a holistic experience that goes beyond your studies. Here are top six reasons why Ireland could be an ideal study destination for you:

1. Quality institutions

One in ten full-time students in Ireland is an international student, which explains the excellence offered by Irish institutions. The Irish government monitors the quality of education via National Framework of Qualifications (NFF). This means irrespective of the university you enroll in, the quality of education remains uniform.

2. Innovation and research

Universities and colleges of Ireland form the top 1% of research institutes of the world with impacts in 19 disciplines including social science, natural science, humanities, and healthcare. This provides huge scope for undergraduate and graduate students to apply for research programs driven by innovation and ample opportunities. Add to it names like Ernest Walton, John Bell, Oscar Wilde, and James Joyce that simply re-establish the fact that innovative thinking, creativity and problem solving are some of the integral aspects of the Irish curriculum.

3. A land of opportunities

Whether you’re applying for an undergraduate course or a graduate program, you will find abundant opportunities in Ireland. In fact, many of the world’s biggest and best organisations have their key strategic research facilities here.

Phew! Also, 50% of the world’s leading financial services firms are also stationed in Ireland.

4. Stay in a safe community

Ireland has been ranking in the top 10 countries in Global Peace Indices of 2018* and 2017*, which makes it among the safest countries in the world. You’ll enjoy similar rights as any local Irish citizen and stay in a society that is always ready to help and support.

5. Experience the Irish culture

The Irish are known for their welcoming and friendly approach. They love their conversations and are probably the best people to make you laugh. In 2017, Ireland was voted as the world’s 10th most sociable country. It is a family-oriented society, which is also extended to their approach towards international students. Also, festivals are an integral part of the Irish culture, which is loaded with traditions, customs and folk music. You’ll be amazed to see the festivities and celebrations during St. Patrick’s Day, Galway Oyster Festival, Puck Fair, Fleadh Traditional Irish Music Festival, and more! When in Ireland, you’ll always feel at home.

6. Work while you learn

Good news - you can support your education in Ireland by working part-time. You’ll be allowed to work for 20 hours per week during the academic session and 40 hours per week during the months of May, June, July, August and mid- December to mid- January.
