Dublin, March 5
The Irish government has announced that international students in Ireland will be permitted to access graduate work opportunities in the country, even if they have been studying remotely in semester II. Indian students will be welcome to apply for the country’s Third Level Graduate Program, even if they have been studying remotely in semester.
To access the scheme, students will need to provide a letter from their higher education institution stating that they were a student for the academic year 2020/2021.
The move was welcomed by Study Group Director for the UK and EU Dr Mark Cunnington, who said, “This is great news for Indian students who are choosing to study in Ireland, which has a long-standing reputation for being welcoming to students from across the world. It is important that governments across the world recognize the challenges faced by Indian students at this difficult time. This news means Indian students across Ireland can continue to enjoy excellent internship and career opportunities in the country.
