Education in Ireland

Education in Ireland

Enterprise Ireland manages the Education in Ireland national brand under the authority of the Minister for Education and Skills. Enterprise Ireland is responsible for the promotion of Irish Higher Education Institutions overseas.

Enterprise Ireland is the Irish state agency responsible for supporting the development of manufacturing and internationally traded services companies. Enterprise Ireland provides funding and supports for companies – from entrepreneurs with plans for a high potential start-up through to large companies expanding their activities, improving efficiency and growing export sales. We also provide funding and supports for college based researchers to assist in the development, protection and transfer of technologies into industry via licensing or spin-out companies.

We recognise your ambition to have the best possible education – one that will set you out on the road to a great career. And whether you’re looking for a general postgraduate degree or a more specialist qualification, we have a solution for you that will not only deliver exceptional educational results but will also set you apart from other candidates on the employment market or in academia. It will do so by dint of studying in a country that constantly re-invents itself, is globally connected, is socially and economically progressive, deeply welcoming and steeped in rich heritage and culture. But equally important, our national culture of being pioneering, creative and agile will help you learn the crucial life skills of resilience, self-reliance and self-confidence.

Ireland is a friendly, safe country. But don’t just take our word for it.

  • In 2010, Lonely Planet named Ireland the most friendly country in the world.
  • The Global Peace Index rates 158 nations worldwide on measures such as conflict, safety and security in society and militarisation. In 2014, it ranked Ireland the 13th most peaceful place on Earth.
Friendly and safe environment
  • In 2013, the OECD put Ireland in the top ten in its Better Life Index. In general, Irish people were more satisfied with their lives and had more positive experiences in a typical day than the OECD average. What’s more, the Irish scored second highest in the OECD for citizens volunteering time, giving money and helping a stranger.

The Irish have a huge maternal side and love to welcome or ‘mother’ new guests.  If staying with a host family, you’re sure to be treated as one of the family. If not, there’s always a greeting or a helping hand just around the corner.

Ireland’s Higher Education Institutions are absolutely committed to ensuring that visiting students settle in to their new environment and have all the information needed for an enjoyable stay. All our higher education institutions have a designated staff member to whom international students can turn for any assistance.

Simply put, we’re a friendly, welcoming bunch of people, and that’s why international students get so much out of the Irish experience.

While Ireland has its own language and distinct cultural identity, English is the universal spoken language and is one of the reasons why so many multinational businesses locate their European base here.

It also makes Ireland a great choice for international students. English is now the global language of business. According to a recent article in the Harvard Business Review more and more multinational companies, including Airbus, Daimler-Chrysler, Fast Retailing, Nokia, Renault, Samsung, SAP, Technicolor and Microsoft in Beijing, are establishing English as their common corporate language in order to facilitate communication across geographically diverse locations and business functions.

What’s more, it’s the language of choice in the technology world. An estimated 565 million people use  English on the internet.

In total, Harvard Business Review estimates that there are close to 385 million native English speakers in countries like the UK, US and Australia; about a billion fluent speakers in formerly colonised nations such as India and Nigeria, and millions of people around the world who’ve studied English as a second language. In fact, English is spoken at a useful level by some 1.75 billion people worldwide.

Dublin is a UNESCO City of Literature, our writers have had a ground-breaking impact on English literature, we have enriched the language with thousands of Irish-derived words and phrases and, for a small country, our authors have amassed a huge haul of literary awards.

Ireland’s longstanding reputation for high-quality education is built on a solid foundation of commitment to excellence. Today we have one of the best education systems in the world and an internationally renowned reputation for academic quality.

34 higher education institutions in Ireland offer an extensive range of over 5000 programmes leading to internationally recognised, quality assured qualifications. International students can choose to meet their educational needs in highly respected business schools, centres of scientific and technology excellence as well as renowned language, humanities and arts faculties.
