Talking about the Indian market, Mr. O’Driscoll added, “One of the major reasons why Indian students are heading to Ireland is because of its strong sense of ROI – which in simple terms means the career boost against their graduation. Today, Ireland offers over 200 scholarships for aspiring Indian students at higher level either undergraduate or postgraduate studies.”
A key advantage of studying in Ireland is that students can avail of up to two years ‘stay-back’ option after completing their course, at postgraduate level. This guarantees students the opportunity to remain in Ireland for a period of two years to seek employment in dynamic sectors such as ICT, biopharma, engineering, medical devices, food science and financial services. The possibility of gaining valuable post-study work experience, makes Ireland a very compelling option for the Indian students. With over 1,000 multinationals based in Ireland, the country offers exciting career opportunities for talented graduates.
The country also offers a buzzing, multicultural society where students will certainly find the highest of education standards and warmest of welcomes as Ireland is well known for being a safe and welcoming society.
