BENGALURU: Education in Ireland, an organisation responsible for the development and growth of Ireland’s education sector, conducted an education fair on Sunday. Over 15 Irish institutes engaged with more than 200 students and informed them about the opportunities available for them in Ireland.

Many students at the fair were drawn by the scholarships offered by the government of Ireland.

It was announced that the government will offer 20 scholarships -- up to 100 per cent of the tuition fee plus up to 10,000 euros as stipend per month-- out of which 10 scholarships were reserved for Indian students.

The main aim of the fair is to establish Ireland as a destination for education among Indian students.

Harriet Le Good, an international recruitment officer at Dublin City University, concurred, “Many, when looking for opportunities abroad, turn to universities in the US, UK, Canada or Australia, even though Ireland offers the best facilities. So this fair is a great way to acquaint them with what Ireland has to offer.”

There were discussions by experts from institutions like the Dublin Business School, Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology, National College of Ireland, University of Limerick, National University of Ireland, Galway and others on a wide array of interesting topics such as education excellence, teaching practices, Irish culture, linkage with industry through research and business collaborations.

State-of-the-art study facilities apart, international students can opt for the ‘Graduate Employment Scheme,’ which is a one-year stay back option to seek employment.
