Are you still not convinced that Ireland is your best bet?  Read through the five reasons itemized below and get ready to pack your bags because you’re sure to! 

First, Northern Ireland is NOT Ireland, the island of Ireland is divided into two separate jurisdictions: The Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. The Republic of Ireland, which makes up the southern portion of the country, is independent from the United Kingdom, while Northern Ireland is part of the UK.

Having cleared that out. Let’s learn why you should study in Ireland!

Reason 1

No Language Barrier.

Although Irish Gaelic is recognized as the official language of Ireland, only 36% of the Irish population speak it and the country is predominantly English spoken which mean almost everyone speaks English!

Language Barrier is off and you’re sure to improve on your diction as even the janitor speaks perfect English.

Reason 2

Part-time Student Jobs

Students can work up to 20 hours during semester months and 40 hours during holidays so you can earn some extra money and most importantly get valuable work experience as the country is home to big international businesses such as Microsoft, Apple, Google and much more who are often looking for potential new employees.

Reason 3

Highly Ranked Universities with lots of Scholarship Opportunities

Ireland is home to some of the best universities in the world with most universities at top 250 in the 2019 THE World University Rankings and has an international reputation of the highest quality education. There are plenty of generous scholarship opportunities available in Ireland from university specific to government scholarships ranging from tuition discounts to fully funded scholarships.

Reason 4

Post Study Work Visa

One of the major benefits of studying in Ireland is the post-study visa. This makes it easier for students who are looking for job opportunities in the country after they graduate. The government has given the option of a year if you studied an undergraduate courses and 2 years if you studied a post graduate course. Even better is once they have found a good employment, they are then eligible to apply for a green card/work permit.

Reason 5
