Study in Ireland

The word ‘Ireland’ creates some confusion in the minds of many of who do not follow the history us of the island. Traditionally, our school text-books give a confusing statement that Britain or UK comprises England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. This is only partly true.  Though the island of Ireland is geographically a single unit, it is politically divided into two.  The north-eastern measuring part, nearly one-sixth of the total area, is called Northern Island, which is part of the United Kingdom. The remaining five-sixths form the Republic of Ireland, or imply Ireland. Its Irish name is Eire

 

We discuss here the opportunities for higher education in the sovereign state of Ireland. It has a fine tradition in quality education and scientific research. A country with 99% literacy and the halo of Nobel laureates like George Bernard Shaw. W B Yeats, Samuel Beckett, and physicist Ernest Walton brings to our mind an ambiance of excellence in education. As a result of sustained investment in education, 81% of Irish students complete the second-level and approximately 60% go on to higher education.
