Leaving high school and entering the tertiary sphere can be a very liberating experience for students. For many, it is the first time that they are acting almost completely independently as the young adults that they are becoming.
With that in mind, it is no wonder that these students with a fresh claim to independence might want to pursue their studies overseas. The Education In Ireland for Africa body can help with those prospects, being the Official Government of Ireland Education Fairs in Africa aiming to promote Ireland as the ideal study destination for African students to pursue.
The body offers its services to African students in the regions of Nigeria, Ghana, East Africa and South Africa. They host regular online and in-person recruitment fairs, wherein students will be able to engage with representatives from a wide selection of Irish institutions, and possibly find the school that is just the right fit for them.
These institutions include:
- Atlantic Technological University
- Dublin Business School
- Dublin City University
- Dundalk Institute of Technology
- Dorset College Dublin
- Griffith College
- Mary Immaculate College
- Maynooth University
- Munster Technological University
- National College of Ireland
- National University of Ireland Galway
- South East Technological University
- Technological University Dublin
- Technological University of the Shannon
- Trinity College Dublin
- University College Cork
- University College Dublin
- University of Limerick
Students would find themselves lucky to be studying at any of these institutions, with some of their top courses being in the following subject areas:
- Business Administration
- Business Analytics
- Civil Engineering
- Computer Science
- Data Science
- Electric/Electronic Engineering
- International Relations
- Mechanical Engineering
- Software Engineering
Apart from the variety of study options that students will be exposed to, they can also expect to hear of the many advantages that living in Ireland has at these recruitment fairs. Some of these advantages include its rich heritage and culture, and its social and economic progressiveness to name just two.
Furthermore, students will be given greater insight into the country’s national culture built upon three essential traits. These traits include being pioneering, creative, and agile, and they have come to form the foundation of the Irish nation.
On a more recreational front, Ireland is known for its lively pubs where students can go to find a good time, or to enjoy conversations spurred with the dark humour that has become one of Ireland’s many national traits. Moreover, its beautiful landscapes are sure to offer the perfect escape from daily work.
