1.How you find Irish student life? How you survived in Irish lifestyle? What challenges u faced? What are
advantages and disadvantages studying in Ireland?

 

How to get job in Ireland
It was my dream to travel abroad for my higher education and incidentally I chose Ireland. I did a bit of research on Ireland before my journey and found out that they are extremely friendly and ”full of craic” people. And to be honest they are. Most of the people over here are lovely. Coming from a different culture and quite a closed society where studying abroad is mostly glared or negatively commented upon, I would say the student life over here is quite exciting. I only started drinking or going out to clubs for the first time over here and it has been ecstatic for me. Maybe at times, I was a bit carried away by the whole of Irish aura and being the first time to travel somewhere so far but overall it has been a wonderful experience.Irish culture I would say is one of the biggest challenges over here apart from of course, securing a job but the later part is difficult everywhere (explained in detail in q3). I would say every country you shall be visiting; the first thing is to know about is its culture. If you are more acquainted with its culture you would feel more at
home and feel more welcomed by the residents of the country. But fortunately, I had my host family to teach me about that and I think that I have a pretty good grasp of Irish culture right now. I have also been commented by many people that they thought I have been living here for many years since according to
them, I have “imbibed” their culture quite well.

Swagat Mhaske from UCD explains ‘How to get job in Ireland?’

Swagat Mhaske has completed his graduation from UCD in 2017 and now he is working in Bank Of Ireland which is great place to work here in Ireland. We will discuss his journey about his higher education in Ireland and how he got job in Ireland. His some tips for new international students will be really helpful for How to get job in Ireland?

1.How you find Irish student life? How you survived in Irish
lifestyle? What challenges you faced? What are advantages and
dis-advantages studying in Ireland?

Ireland was never known for its further education system before 5-6 years, at least not in
India. Most of my relatives and friends ask me why I chose Ireland as the destination for my
masters. This is because there are some defined countries to do MS, and so most of my fellow
mates went to the States or Canada. But on an honest note, Ireland offers the best of both
worlds. And now here I am, writing the blog from Dublin.
After coming to Ireland, I do not regret my decision of living a life of Irish student. I still
remember my first day of college, wandering in the UCD campus, being scared and nervous,
but high as a kite for the new phase. And right from the first day, I started adapting to Irish
culture. Studying in Ireland gives you an opportunity to make friends from different nations,
and this is what gives a sense of education abroad.
It is very important to get yourself involved in activities going around in the University
campus or Dublin city, be it some event, meetups or any Indian festival. I think study abroad
not just relates to academics, but co-curricular activities as well and what we call an
‘International Exchange’. Read More
