“The country also offers a buzzing, multicultural society where students will certainly find the highest of education standards and warmest of welcomes and is well known as being a safe,” he said. These education fairs were organised in Bangalore, Chennai, Coimbatore, Pune and Mumbai.
“A key advantage of studying in Ireland is that students can avail of up to two years ‘stay-back’ option after completing their course, at postgraduate level. This guarantees students the opportunity to remain in Ireland for a period of one year to seek employment in dynamic sectors such as ICT, biopharma, engineering, medical devices, food science and financial services,” Driscoll added.
