The challenges brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic impacted the study abroad dream of many Indian students. International travel restrictions and the ensuing confusion that followed with virtual classrooms raised several doubts and concerns.
Ireland has been taking decisive steps to combat the situation and last month was even named the best country for its response to the pandemic.
To communicate this message and to address queries of parents and students, Education in Ireland, a Government of Ireland brand under the authority of the Minister for Education and Skills, hosted a virtual education webinar for Indian and Sri Lankan students.
Speaking about Ireland’s commitment to encourage students to pursue their study abroad plans, Barry O’Driscoll, Regional Manager, India & South Asia for Education in Ireland said, ”The Education in Ireland Virtual Showcase brings together Indian and Sri Lankan students on an online platform to provide a transparent and straightforward interaction with Ireland’s top higher education institutes.
Over 40 representatives from 20 Irish higher education institutions were able to answer student queries at length through audio and video-based chats. It was indeed heartening to see the great number of participants attend the Showcase.”
“Ireland has retained its position as a preferred study destination for many international students being one of the few countries that has effectively opened up its borders to its international students. Additionally, Ireland’s education system ranks in the top 10 globally and is one that meets the needs of a competitive economy.
This meant that we saw a lot of genuine interest for undergraduate and postgraduate programs across different streams including ICT, business, medicine and pharmacy, hospitality and tourism, as well as humanities and the arts. The sector-wise seminars enlightened students on popular programmes and career opportunities after their degrees,” added Mr. Driscoll.
