Why Ireland

In the dark ages, Ireland was a beacon of learning, and students from all around the continent would travel to study in Irish monasteries.  Today, it continues that proud and historic tradition and for the last five decades Ireland has been a location of choice for students around the globe.

In the past three decades, successive Irish Governments have put a vast amount of resources into education and research.  The reputation of Ireland’s higher education system has grown considerably, and its research is now making an international impact. US President Barack Obama has said that the Irish people are “among the best educated in the world”.
