Top Irish Universities to Hold Pre-Departure Sessions for Indian Students

Dublin: The influx of Indian students aiming to study and work in Ireland has commenced, with leading Irish universities planning to conduct pre-departure sessions in India. These sessions aim to ease the transition for students by providing free advice on cultural adjustment, visas, packing tips, budgeting, accommodation, and healthcare.

However, the Indian community in Ireland cautions prospective students about the significant issues of accommodation and cost of living. They urge students not to arrive with unrealistic expectations, as they may face considerable hardships.

Pre-departure sessions are designed to equip students with essential information to ensure a smoother transition. Representatives from the National College of Ireland, Dublin City University, Shannon University of Technology, and Maynooth University have pledged to assist Indian students interested in coming to Ireland. These sessions have already taken place in Chennai on June 29 and Bengaluru on June 30. Upcoming sessions are scheduled for Delhi on July 3, Pune on July 6, and Mumbai on July 7. University officials emphasise the importance of these sessions in providing practical information about campus life and Irish culture, helping students connect with peers and navigate their new environment.

In 2023, Ireland welcomed 7,000 Indian students, a significant increase from just 700 in 2013. Recruitment agencies confirm that Ireland remains a favoured destination for Indian students, especially as countries like the UK, Canada, and Australia tighten their policies for international students. This trend suggests that Ireland is likely to continue attracting a substantial number of Indian students in the future.
