Ireland is an exciting place to live and study. Our blend of tradition and contemporary living is unique. We are proud and protective of our ancient culture, yet we have embraced our role as a centre for the digital revolution and international trade. Over 4.1 million people enjoy our mild, oceanic climate and a landscape that stretches across lakes and mountains, and more than 2,000 miles of coastline which attracts over 6 million tourists to our shores yearly.
In recent years Ireland has become a global centre for the banking, telecommunications, pharmaceutical and software industries. With an impressively high quality of life and a well-educated workforce, many international companies have set up their European headquarters in the country. Ireland has had one of the highest economic growth rates in the EU and much of this success can be attributed to our education system. Our long and impressive academic tradition has been established over many years and, today, the country offers one of the highest standards of education in the world.
There can be few better cities than Dublin, the capital of Ireland, in which to enjoy your time as a student as it continues to be one of Europe’s most exciting and vibrant capital cities.
Dublin has a population of approximately 1.5 million people yet having all the amenities of a big city it still retains a small town atmosphere. As a large percentage of its population is under the age of 35, Dublin is a city of entertainment and culture. It’s home to a wide variety of art galleries, museums, theatres, cinemas, shops, restaurants and cafes, nightclubs, zoological gardens and much more to ensure your time in Dublin is memorable.
Dublin is also a university town with a proud tradition of learning and scholarship.
