In response to increased student interest in Ireland, Education in Ireland – ‘the Irish Government’s national brand for the promotion of Irish higher education institutions’ successfully concluded its first post-pandemic Education Fair in Chennai.
16 higher education institutions from Ireland were present at the fair, speaking to around 450 students and parents in Chennai.
Mr. Barry O’Driscoll said
The re-introduction of the in-person fairs brought a wealth of opportunities for attendees and provided students with key insights into available programmes, enrolments, offerings, campus life, accommodation, international student support, scholarships and culture. Dialogues on visa processing were an integral part of this fair and help students understand the timeline for applying to study in Ireland for the academic year 2023-2024.
“Ireland in particular has proven to be an inviting option for international students. In the last academic cycle, more than 5,000 Indian students chose Ireland as their study abroad destination. Regarding the fairs,” said Mr. Barry O’Driscoll, Regional Manager for India and South Asia for Education Ireland.
