Education in Ireland recently organised a undergraduate showcase at four Kolkata schools as well as an educational fair at The Park Hotel to spread awareness about Ireland as a study hub for Indian students.
As part of the showcase, representatives of Education in Ireland, Irish educational institutions and top-ranked Irish universities visited Garden High School, followed by Delhi Public School, Kolkata and Sri Sri Academy on August 18. Next day, the team visited Calcutta International School.
In addition to the school visit, Education in Ireland and Irish universities hosted an educational fair at The Park Hotel for students and parents on August 19.
Expressing Ireland’s commitment to providing excellence in education and making its graduates market-ready for the future, Barry O’Driscoll, regional manager of Education in Ireland (India & South Asia), said, “Our aim is to present students with an opportunity to explore and find the right courses with job prospects through direct interaction with representatives of Irish educational institutions.”
The initiative was the first grand study-abroad guidance and counselling platform organised by Education in Ireland for school students of Kolkata.
“Ireland is one of the top 10 education destinations across the world, according to IMB World Competitiveness Ranking 2019. The country has a stable, competitive, secure and pro-business economy, which provides a perfect backdrop for students out of school who are looking to grow their careers. Irish higher educational institutions offer ample opportunities and in-depth courses for undergraduate students,” O’Driscoll said.
