Following the great response, the Government of Ireland is back with their ‘Education in Ireland fairs’ for Indian students who are determined to polish their skills and grow both, professionally and personally.
This year the fairs will be conducted in 5 cities across India wherein leading Irish Institutes will be present in each fair 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 to provide students and parents with integrated solutions for all their queries.

Explaining the purpose behind organizing these fairs, Mr. Barry O’Driscoll, Senior Education Adviser, India – Education inIreland said, “In addition to meeting the institutions, the annual fairs are designed for the benefit of the student to access end-to-end education market in Ireland while getting a broader perspective on the variety of courses being offered, the job opportunities given post studies and to understand the visa procedures without bearing any financial risk or investment of time.”
At this edition of the fair, Education in Ireland will also be organizing a Hospitality Masterclass in Mumbai with an aim to provide a platform to students who are interested in Hotel Management & culinary arts. Apart from the wide range of sponsorships from multiple Irish sources, Education in Ireland will also offer 3000-euro worth scholarships to two students present at the fair from each city.
Acknowledging the trends of education, India has always invested in education with a strong sense of ROI- which in simple terms means the career boost against their graduation. “India has been an influential market in terms of both trade and international students export for Ireland. Many students who aspire to receive higher-education from a foreign country are now well aware of Ireland and its globally recognized degrees & courses, benefits of working part-time and a 24 month stay back option as these factors have tremendously contributed to the rise in education exports. Over 4500 Indian students are currently studying in Ireland and we hope to see this number increase in the coming years.” adds Mr. O’Driscroll who will be present at the fairs to have face-to-face interaction with the students.
