In the past academic year, there has been a 43% increase in applications for undergraduate programs at Irish universities – with many coming from Boston. When compared to U.S. higher education, Irish universities offer students the opportunity to specialize earlier, are less costly than many U.S. colleges, and provide a unique cultural experience that students use as a differentiator when entering the job market.
Attendees will have the unique opportunity to have one-on-one discussions about the schools, Irish culture, application process, and post-graduate job opportunities with key alumni and representatives from seven top Irish universities, including: Trinity College Dublin; Dublin City University; National University of Ireland, Galway; National University of Ireland, Maynooth; University College Cork; University College Dublin; and University of Limerick.
Ireland is a multi-faceted country, combining contemporary modern, history-filled cities with a picturesque countryside. The island’s varied environment is ideal for many outdoor pursuits such as climbing, water sports and a variety of team sports. Ireland also provides easy access to European destinations, with low-cost, frequent flights making trips affordable.
Ireland’s universities are internationally renowned in a variety of fields, spanning the liberal arts, engineering, sciences and technology. These institutions have helped build Ireland’s reputation, renowned for producing the likes of Oscar Wilde, James Joyce, physicist John Bell and Nobel Laureate Ernest Walton.
