Education in Ireland launched its third annual International Student Ambassador Programme on Sunday November 10th 2013, with a training day for students at Griffith College Dublin
This is a very prestigious, internationally recognised programme which allows prospective students the unique opportunity to interact with another student from their country who is already living and studying in Ireland through the blog site http://blog.educationinireland.com and numerous social media platforms.
The response to this year’s call for Student Ambassadors was truly overwhelming: we received hundreds of applications from international students around Ireland, and had a very difficult job selecting just 50 students to become representatives. The students represent 10 countries and 24 higher education institutions in Ireland and are a fantastically motivated group who thoroughly engaged with the training process and really got involved in the Gaelic Games sporting activities and the Ceili we held after the training!
