Study In Ireland
EMJEKS EDU PLUS Study Program
The Irish Government invests over 782 million annually in research in Ireland’s higher education institutions. The impact of this funding is that Ireland’s higher education institutions now lead the world in an increasing number of fields. Irish universities are in the top 1% of research institutions in the world in terms of research impact in 19 fields, spanning natural sciences, social sciences and the humanities. This creates a unique opportunity for you at undergraduate and postgraduate level to join research programmes that are driving innovation and changing lives worldwide.
Ireland is also where some of the world’s biggest and best companies have located key strategic research facilities. And in Ireland, you’ll find a unique ecosystem that sees academic researchers working hand-in-hand with small home-grown and start-up companies in partnership with some of the most powerful multinationals on the planet through a programme for shared research projects developed by Enterprise Ireland and IDA Ireland.
See why you need to study in Ireland
Rich sense of community
The Irish are some of the happiest people you’ll ever meet. Whether you’re at a hurling match, at the pub or enjoying a spring concert in the park, everyone is looking to have a laugh and enjoy themselves. Being a foreigner will only make you feel more welcomed as the Irish love to share their laughs and stories with visitors.
The Irish are also some of the most welcoming people around. Hospitality plays a large role in Irish culture, so you’ll likely get to know a lot of locals right away. Although social circles (among locals) are very solid – friendships often last a lifetime – people are also very keen to make new friends and make visitors and resident foreigners feel very welcome.
Dublin – a student’s city
Dublin is home to many renowned universities. It’s also home to a large international student population. If this isn’t reason enough, TopUniversities.com praises Dublin’s particularly friendly environment, great nightlife and global diversity as a constant draw for international students looking for a great opportunity to explore a growing city.
Ireland, an EU and EEA (European Union and European Economic Area) member, allows for citizens of other EU and EEA states to travel to Ireland without a visa (you need to be registered as a student, for ex. to be able to stay longer than three months, or work). Not a citizen of an EU or EEA country? Have no fear. Ireland has agreements with numerous countries making student visa processes less complicated than you may think.
Understanding the accent
Understanding the Irish accent requires some extra effort. As you move from one region of Ireland to another you’ll experience different levels of the Irish accent, ranging from sweet and melodic to rather incomprehensible. Learning English in this environment will prove helpful in any other English-speaking country as it’s going to make you particularly good at deciphering even thick accents!
Dublin is considerably less expensive than big metropolitan centers like London or New York, a particular perk for students who need to manage a tighter budget and find cheap accommodation, for example. For those studying English, it’s even more important to free up cash to do and experience as many things as possible while you’re there – you’ll learn as much from putting your skills to use with locals as you will from memorizing grammar rules in class.
Modern meets mythic
While Irish culture holds its history in high regard, the country is also very modern and tech-savvy with any amenity you can imagine and some of the biggest tech companies headquartered in the country’s capital. It’s this mix of the ‘old’ and the ‘new’ that make Ireland particularly charming, friendly and interesting.
Proximity to Europe
Another killer reason to study English in Ireland is how incredibly close you are to the rest of Europe. Is the Eiffel Tower on your checklist? How about Big Ben? Taking a quick flight to many of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations for a long weekend is easy (and affordable). With quick flights and some planning, you’ll be back in time to finish studying for Monday’s exams.
Ireland is simply one of the most picturesque countries in Europe, and the lush countryside is particularly stunning. Littered with charming villages, rolling green hills, and wild coastlines, a road trip around Ireland makes for one endless photo-op (your Instagram account will thank you).
Few More Reasons
There’s a decent chance you’re part Irish
The people or Ireland have endured many periods of hardship. From the Potato Famine to bombings and typhus outbreaks during the world wars, there have been plenty of reasons for the Irish to emigrate to other countries in the past. It is for this reason that there are so many people of Irish heritage in every corner of the world – and why you might also be part-Irish (and have every reason to come live in your country of origin!).
