NEW DELHI: Education in Ireland, the initiative by the Irish government, was successfully concluded its first post-pandemic in-person Education Fair in New Delhi. Sixteen higher education institutions from Ireland had discussions with approximately 350 students and parents in Delhi.

The relaunch of the education fair provided insights to students regarding programmes available, intakes, offerings, campus life, accommodation, international student support, scholarships, and culture. “Dialogues on visa processing formed an integral part of this fair, helping students understand the road map to apply to study in Ireland for the academic year 2023-2024,” the official statement read.

Engineering, Computing, Business, Nursing, and Social Sciences are popular courses which Indian students pursue in Ireland. More recently there has been an increased interest in courses that focus on emerging technologies such as AI, Agri-Tech, Data Analytics, Fin-Tech and Cyber Security.
