Overseas Education in Ireland – For great career prospects!
Students, who aspire to study abroad, normally look for familiar options such as Canada, US and UK while considering an ideal destination for their higher education. The main reason for this is that students like to go to places that are tried and tested and prefer going to these countries which already have a strong Indian presence among their student body. However, in the recent years many Indian students have began to look beyond these countries while choosing their study abroad programs. Many of them are even opting for locations such as France, Germany, Sweden and others. One of the destinations that are gaining popularity is Ireland, a small country that is tied both by geography and history to the United Kingdom. We take a look at the higher education scene in this beautiful country.
Growing popularity of Ireland as Abroad Education Destination
The number of international students who come to study abroad in Ireland is growing steadily year after year. According to Richard Burton, the Minister for education in Ireland, the country has launched measures that proactively encourage students to choose Ireland as their destination for study abroad. The Minister opined that the last five years have seen a marked increase in the number of international students and that many more students will be enrolled by the year 2020.
Students who come to study abroad in this beautiful country are fascinated with its rich culture, history and the beauty of its green landscapes. Many undergraduate students recommend this to their friends and as a result more students come in to choose this country as their destination for study abroad. One of the things that attract students to Ireland is the low cost of tuition in comparison with the other countries which are offering the same quality of education and research facilities as Ireland.
