Education in Ireland
Education in Ireland. Ireland has become a popular destination for Indian students to pursue higher education. Indian students have reached greener pastures, quite literally, in their pursuit for newer options for higher education.Ireland, with its picturesque villages, vibrant cities and the tag of being one of the friendliest countries in the world, has managed to convince a growing number of students in India that the grass is indeed greener on the other side.Small country it maybe, but some aggressive marketing and promotional efforts have earned Ireland a sizeable population of Indian students in most of its well-known universities. Education in Ireland (the government organisation responsible for the development of Ireland’s higher education sector in world markets) said there were over 23,000 international students enrolled in publicly funded institutions in Ireland in the academic year 2013-14.This is said to be an increase of over 60 per cent compared with the figures in 2009-10. The highest number of international students in Ireland comes from six key places — India, China, U.S., Brazil, Malaysia and the Gulf. Indian students are heading to Irish universities mainly to study subjects such as computer science, business analytics, engineering, pharmacy, business, accounting and hospitality management.Click here to view the original web page at www.thehindu.com
