Ireland is one of the world’s friendliest countries, in fact it has been awarded this accolade twice in recent years by the travel guide company Lonely Planet.

Degrees from Irish Universities are recognized internationally so you can be assured your future employer will respect the addition in your experience. Ireland has been chosen by some of the world’s largest technology companies as their European base, these companies include Google, Facebook, Apple and Intel. In many cases across the world, large companies work alongside nearby Universities to develop their courses and provide qualifications that better match the needs of the employer – all of which increases the value of your degree.

Ireland, a large island in north-west Europe, has been offering University education since the 16th Century. The country renowned for it’s kind and welcoming population alongside it’s emerald green landscape has a world-class education provision, often overlooked when considering studying abroad.

To get studies in Ireland, every student needs to have a minimum level of effectiveness in that language and prove the same to the authorities of her/his university as well as Immigration authorities for visa. The tried and tested method for bettering the levels in English is by preparing and appearing for the International English language Testing System (IELTS) test. All leading University websites have a certain minimum score that is needed to be scored by the student for the desired program that the student needs to study. After clearing IELTS, the student needs to give other exams that are required such as GRE, GMAT, SAT, etc. Note that there are certain Universities and courses that admit students without the need to give these exams. However, English proficiency is a must that the student needs to demonstrate.

Ireland’s currency is the Euro (€), however because Northern Ireland (which is home to two of the Universities in Ireland) is a member country of the United Kingdom the currency there is the Pound Sterling (£).

When it comes to costs of living, Ireland is not as expensive as some other European countries, but students will probably need to pay close attention to their budget; a meal in an inexpensive restaurant can cost about 10 Euro, while a single bus fare will average around1.20 Euro.
