Ireland is extremely popular among Indian students because of its attractiveness, high living standards and progressive education system. Irish universities are traditionally considered to be as prestigious as British ones and they regularly prove that by appearing in top lists of best educational institutions in the world. However, the cost of studying for Indians is not that affordable, although it is a bit lower than in Great Britain, which is almost similar to Ireland in terms of prestige and quality of specialist training.
It should be pointed out that education in Ireland is based on the same scheme as in Great Britain, and diplomas of higher education that Indians can get are recognized in the entire world and open the door to the best companies. Besides, education English-language programs offered by Irish universities are considered to be the best these days. A lot of Indian students also come to this country to study English, and their amount is little less than the amount of Indian students who come for a diploma of higher education.
The most promising field of study in Ireland at the moment is IT, which is engaged in the maximum amount of researches and all innovations are implemented in the study process and programs. Indian graduates who obtained a diploma of an Irish university in computer technologies are much in demand in the world labor market. However, same deal with other specializations.
Despite the fact that education in Ireland will cost you less than in the USA or England, an average Indian student may find the price a bit high. That’s why attitude to work during studies is quite loyal, which means that Indian students are allowed to work 20 hours a week and twice as much on holiday. This involves not only university students, but also those who attend English-language courses.
The government encourages the growth of young talented people in the country, especially considering the fact that the level of unemployment is low there. That’s why Indian student who graduated from a university may stay in Ireland for another year for the purposes of employment, and in case of achieving positive results he/she may get a green card or a residence permit.comments powered by HyperComments
