In a bid to woo Indian students to study in Ireland, top 20 Irish universities will participate in a series of education fairs in the country.
Starting on November 17 in New Delhi, the fairs will be held in Pune on 18 November, Mumbai on 21 November, Bengaluru on 24 November, and will conclude in Chennai on 25 November.
“Education in Ireland provides a platform to the intending students to have a face-to-face interaction with the university officials and get answers to all their queries pertaining to the studies and courses in Ireland, gauge their prospect and apply directly to the institutions of their choice,” said Barry O’Driscoll, Senior Adviser of Education in Ireland.
As part of the agenda of the fairs, representatives from Irish Universities will discuss admission procedures, scholarships, and eligibility criteria for over 5,000 diverse educational programme and job prospects for Indian students.
“Irish universities rank among the best in the world and also offer free fees schemes, scholarships, grants and bursaries for students who meet the various criteria,” Driscoll added.
In June 2017, Ireland elected 38 year old Indian-origin leader Leo Eric Varadkar as the country’s youngest-ever Prime Minister.
