A Quality Education

Irish education among the best in the world, topping the global ranks for quality of education systems. Irish universities are in the top 1% of research institutions in the world in terms of research impact in 19 fields, from natural and social sciences to the humanities. This translates into a dynamic and unique experience where students have consistent access to world-class research opportunities.

Multinational and Multicultural

The country has become remarkably multicultural in recent years, thanks to the many leading global companies that have their European bases in Ireland, including Google, Facebook, PayPal, Microsoft, Apple, Pfizer, and many more. Enterprise Ireland and IDA Ireland have developed a programme for shared research that sees academic researchers collaborating with local, small and startup companies in partnership with some of the largest multinational companies in the world. There are more than 35,000 international students currently studying in Ireland, benefiting from the connections to these multinational companies.
