Why you should Study in Ireland
Ireland is a welcoming country known for its friendliness and hospitality, facilitating students who come for overseas studies to adapt to life in Ireland. The beautiful Irish countryside, its rich history, the ease of conversing in the English language, cheaper education as compared to other English speaking countries and a 2-year post-study work visa for students are the primary reasons why it is fast becoming a majorly sought-out study abroad destination.
