NEW DELHI: Over 3,000 Indian and Sri Lankan students registered for an Ireland education fair hosted by Education in Ireland, a Government of Ireland brand under the authority of the Minister for Education and Skills.

“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,” an official statement said.
