1. Plan ahead – get the basics right No matter where you are, moving abroad to study can become daunting if you’re not prepared well in advance. For Indian students, it is better to plan for your Ireland study at least a year in advance. This includes picking the right program, applying to colleges of your choice, getting your documents in order, securing your visa, providing necessary proofs of affordability, looking for research or industry career opportunities etc. Early planning will make your entire stay in Ireland enjoyable. You can also speak to an expert who will help you plan this to your best advantage. 2. Where and what to study Despite being an island nation, Ireland has quite a few top global universities and over 5000study programs to choose from! While Dublin, the ‘student hub’, remains the most popular destination, it is not your only option. There are other high-ranking universities in cities like Cork, Limerick, and Galway. You can pursue either your Bachelor’s Degree of three years, a Master’s Degree of one to two years or a Doctorate/PhD course. Many institutions also offer shorter certificate and diploma courses with global recognition and accreditation.
