We may not be the size of a country just yet, but we have our own Ambassadors!

A DIFC Ambassador is someone that you can talk to, who will share their experience of DIFC and Ireland. They can tell you what to expect, the things that were just as they anticipated
– and the things that took them by surprise!

Whether it’s the standard of teaching, the quality of the accommodation, the social life in Dublin or Cork … these guys have been there and done it. So, you can learn first-hand off them
– and not just take our word for it!

Read about each of our Ambassadors here and, if you would like to be put in contact with any of them, complete the form available on the button below.

Why did you choose to study in Ireland?

Before I come to Ireland, I was considering the UK. But because of the following reasons I choose to study in Ireland:

Ireland has less Chinese students compare to UK, I can hang out with international students practice my English and experience different culture rather than stay with Chinese Students.

I did a research that almost all the universities in Ireland rank top 500 university in the world.

Ireland is a safe country, which my parents feel relieved about.

Ireland costs less compared to UK

I have a friend also graduated from DIFC, her experience helped me to choose come to Ireland.
