~ India’s study abroad enthusiasts turned up in large numbers to engage with 15 leading higher education institutions of Ireland ~
Delhi, February 19: Education in Ireland (the Irish Government’s national education brand overseas) successfully brought to a close its flagship 5-city Education Roadshow with its last stop in the city of Delhi on 19th February. Apart from Delhi, the fairs were conducted in Chennai, Bangalore, Mumbai, and Pune in the month of February, and in attendance were 15 top Irish higher education institutes under one roof.
As Ireland’s Ambassador to India, Mr. Brendan Ward rightly said, “Irish higher education institutes rank among top 5% globally. They offer world class education with a diverse student body – making it a preferred location for higher studies for international students. Ireland has also achieved a high visa clearance rate for international aspirants. With the two-year stay-back visa option, students can leverage the dynamic plethora of economic opportunities the nation has to offer. The annual Roadshow comes to India with the aim of introducing aspirants about the amazing opportunities Ireland has to offer, and for them to interact with our best higher education institutions.”
The fairs witnessed a large number of study abroad aspirants engaging with faculty and representatives from Irish colleges and universities. They also interacted with Irish government and visa officials, as well as representatives from Gyandhan (for advice on education loans) and University Living for guidance on accommodation options in Ireland. The attendees at the event were therefore able to gain a thorough insight into the education scenario of Ireland, helping them plan their study-abroad journey ahead.

We are delighted to see the ever-growing number of Indian students pursuing their higher education in Ireland and look forward to welcoming even more in the future.
