Alisha Ma­ha­jan, from Mum­bai, chose Maynooth Univer­sity, Ire­land, for her grad­u­ate de­gree. Now pur­su­ing a Mas­ter’s in Ed­u­ca­tion there, Ma­ha­jan says the course of­fers her the free­dom to choose her own re­search area and that it fo­cuses on both the­ory and prac­tice.

Class Apart As an English-speak­ing coun­try, Ire­land is a great op­tion for in­ter­na­tional stu­dents. Over 4,500 In­dian stu­dents study in Ire­land, of which 90 per cent are in post­grad­u­ate cour­ses. “In 19 fields of re­search, Ir­ish uni­ver­si­ties are in the top one per cent,” says Barry O’Driscoll, se­nior ed­u­ca­tion ad­viser, Ed­u­ca­tion in Ire­land.

De­mand Graph The most pop­u­lar cour­ses in­clude me­chan­i­cal and elec­tronic en­gi­neer­ing, biotech­nol­ogy, cloud com­put­ing, ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence, data an­a­lyt­ics, cy­ber se­cu­rity, ac­count­ing, fi­nance and MBAs.

Why Ire­land Stu­dents can opt for a two-year ‘stay back’ op­tion af­ter their post­grad­u­ate course. With over 1,000 multi­na­tion­als based in the coun­try, stu­dents have an eas­ier time get­ting jobs and work ex­pe­ri­ence.
