Ireland is internationally recognized for its impressive standards of education. Its capital city – which is also the English-speaking capital of the Eurozone – is fast emerging as a prominent education hub for overseas students.
Diploma, master’s and PhD courses are all available at Dublin’s leading universities, colleges and educational institutions. Its ‘high educational level’ is one of the top three ‘attractiveness factors for [Dublin’s] economy’ and a major contributor to its ranking at number 12 in the IMD World Competitiveness Rankings 2018. In the Legatum Prosperity Index 2018, Ireland ranks sixth.
Students are also attracted by its language (English), its culture (rich), its location (gateway to Europe), its environment (safe; green) and most of all, its people. The hospitality and genuine warmth of Dublin’s people is always mentioned by students as one of the most enriching parts of their time here; it makes a vital contribution to their experience of settling in and making the most of student life in the city.
