Education in Ireland’s pre-departure briefing is conducted with an aim to introduce students about the diverse opportunities they will witness in Ireland and also provides a platform to interact with their fellow students and alumni and to build a better network. We are looking forward to seeing them at their respective Institutions this year.”
