Ireland is a very popular study-abroad destination for Indian students. Here’s WHY?

Dublin: Last year, over 5,000 Indian students came to Ireland in search of higher education, better jobs, and a better life. Despite not offering dependent visas like the UK, Ireland remains one of the most popular study destinations for Indian students.

According to the Irish Universities Association, there are currently over 32,000 international students studying in Ireland. Brendan Ward, Ireland’s ambassador to India, has stated that 5,000 Indian students will attend Irish universities in 2023.

What makes Ireland so popular is…

Ireland is one of the safest countries in the world, according to the Global Peace Index 2022, with world-class education standards, improved health infrastructure, and safe working conditions. Ireland is ranked 18th in this category by the World Economic Forum.

Including the University of Dublin and University College Dublin in Ireland. Many educational institutions have been recognised in the QS World University Rankings and the Times Higher Education Rankings.

Ireland is a hub for scientific and engineering research and development. Students studying in Ireland will have many opportunities due to the presence of global institutions in ICT, life sciences, and pharma. Dublin is also a popular financial services centre.

Work along with study… and many other concessions.

Ireland’s immigration laws benefit Indian students as well as those from outside the European Economic Area (EEA). The abundance of opportunities to switch from study visas to work visas after one or two years is the main reason for attracting students here.

The law allows students to work part-time for 20 hours per week while studying and full-time on weekends and holidays.

Furthermore, these students can stay in the country for up to two years after graduation. This time period will allow you to look for permanent work at over 1,000 multinational corporations.

Despite pandemic fears, the Irish government has relaxed labour regulations. During the COVID era, the country also extended the duration of international student visas.

Ireland with relief, even during COVID.

Even after the COVID epidemic spread around the world, Ireland offered financial assistance and integrated study opportunities to students, including Indians, who lost their part-time jobs.

Earlier this year, India and the United Kingdom (including Northern Ireland) signed a memorandum of understanding to strengthen cooperation on migration-related issues.

This move will benefit Indian students, researchers, and skilled professionals.

The Main English Language Test.

The main barrier for those wishing to study in Ireland is the English language test. Ireland is one of the few countries in the European Union where English is the primary language, which will be beneficial in the future for Indian students seeking admission to degree programmes.

Passing the Duolingo test instead of IELTS is sufficient for studying in Ireland.
The Irish government has now made it permanent for universities and colleges in Ireland to use the Duolingo test instead of the IELTS to gain admission to the country’s higher education sector.

This comforting decision comes amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and uncertainty about next year’s study abroad admissions for thousands of Indian students in foreign countries.

Study expenses, incidental expenses, submission of an application.

The Irish government provides over 200 scholarships for Indian students, with over 5000 courses available in 34 higher education institutions. This is in addition to college and university scholarships. Scholarships are more likely to be awarded if they are applied for through qualified consultants.

According to Education Ireland, the cost of living for a student per year, in addition to tuition fees, ranges between €7,000 and €12,000 per year.

A student visa to Ireland is usually granted only after the applicant has guaranteed living expenses for one year. This type of condition is put in place to ensure that applicants do not suffer if they are not hired right away. Silo Sam (An Abroad, Study in Ireland), a prominent Indian educational consultant in Dublin, believes that in the event of a recession, this law could be tightened.

However, in the two years since moving to Ireland to study, everyone who has looked for part-time work has found work, he claims. Silo Sam stated that the chances of visa rejection will be reduced if admission is attempted only through highly professional agencies, based on previous years’ experience of 100% admission of students who applied. It is also important to note that top-tier Irish educational institutions will only consider students who take special care in preparing their biodata and submitting their application.
