Study In Ireland


Ireland is a part of the EU- European Union and is one of the fastest growing economies in the world. It is also declared one of the friendliest countries by a recent survey by Lonely Planet travel.

Ireland has over 2, 00,000 international students who vouch for the standards of education followed by colleges/universities in Ireland.

Many students help support their studies by working 20 hours per week during semesters and 40 hours per week during vacations. The minimum wage in Ireland is 8.65 Euros per hour and after graduation there are work permit and green card opportunities, which can lead to PR.

One strong reason why Ireland is also trying to attract more number of students is the fact that their population is not growing much and they would have a very low level of growth in further education, in terms of numbers.

Trinity College in Dublin is the oldest and most prestigious university that was founded in 1592. National University of Ireland, University College of Dublin, University College Cork, and University of Limerick are equally reputed universities.

Dublin Institute of Technology is the largest among Institutes of Technologies in Ireland. Others include Waterford Institute of Technology, Athlone Institute of Technology, Letterkenny Institute of Technology etc.

The higher education system in Ireland includes university set-up, the technological set-up, and private colleges. Education has been playing a major role in establishing Ireland into one of the fastest growing economies in the world.
