Education Opportunities in Ireland

Indian students have favoured studying abroad, especially, for pursuing master programmes. The trend of leaving the country for postgraduate courses was observed more frequently in metro cities. However, Indian students from different cities have now started considering overseas education for better exposure and global educational experience.

Although the USA, Canada, Australia and the UK are the most popular study abroad destinations, Ireland has emerged as one of the popular destinations for overseas education due to favourable conditions for international students. Ireland has not gone unnoticed amongst Indian students who seek overseas education and 2,500 Indians are currently studying in Ireland.
