Education in Ireland will bring under one roof, 16 Irish HEIs to India for their in-person Education Fair in Bengaluru and across cities in November.
The relaunch of on-ground fairs post the Covid-19 pandemic comes with a plethora of opportunities for its attendees and will offer key insights to Indian students looking forward to studying abroad for the academic year 2023-2024.
The fair will be conducted in Bengaluru at Taj Vivanta, MG Road on November 27 from 12 noon to 5 pm wherein 16 Irish HEIs will be present to address, discuss, respond to queries, speak about programmes available, intakes, offer acceptance, campus life, accommodation, international student support, scholarships, culture and more under one roof without the hassle of hiring an agent.
Barry O’Driscoll, Regional Manager, India and South Asia for Education in Ireland said, “The in-person education fairs are happening after a gap of two years and as we re-commence the fairs across different cities in India, we aim to provide an opportunity for the students to find the right courses and job prospects by interacting face-to-face and directly with representatives of Irish higher education institutions. The fairs will help the students get informed of all the opportunities and prospects that Ireland has to offer.”
In recent years, Ireland has been witnessing a surge in demand for offbeat courses along with courses like mechanical engineering, electronic engineering, biotechnology, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, data analytics, cyber security, accounting/finance and MBA.
Mr. O’Driscoll further added, “We have seen an increased interest of Indian Students in Ireland and the courses the HEI’s offer. Over 5000 Indian students choose Ireland as their study abroad destination at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. One of the key advantages of studying in Ireland is that students can avail of up to two years of ‘stay-back’ options after completing their course, at the postgraduate level. This guarantees students the opportunity to remain in Ireland for a period of one year to seek employment in dynamic sectors.”
The fairs will provide a free platform for all students to interact, gauge their prospects, apply directly to the below-mentioned leading Irish institution, and receive first-hand information on courses, the admission process, job opportunities, campus recruitment, scholarships, intakes, and so on.
