ms in ireland

Why I choose MS in Ireland rather than USA or UK or Australia?

Everyone wants to step up there career with higher education and its very important decision of their life because its last option(not exactly) where you can turn your future into some extra miles so why not try MS in Ireland.

Sorry I forgot to introduce my self I am Jayesh from India.I choose MS in Ireland because its too much cost effective, Irish culture and its booming Tech Market.

I choose  M.Sc. In Data Analytics  from National College Of Ireland to enter into growing data analytics market.

Why MS in Ireland?

Ireland has become leading  “new” destination for students to pursue their master’s degree. There are a obvious reasons for this

My reason was , everyone goes to the US, Australia, Canada, UK etc and spend atleast 25Lacs over there and then they try to nill there loan for two to three years.

My father was retired from his job and I had to quit my job and wanted to do MS with minimum cost and I came to know about Ireland. In Ireland you can do MS within 20 Lacs so it’s a good option if you are weak in funding or loans.

Another reason to do MS in Ireland is that Ireland is ranked “most friendliest country” for every person because there people are so much welcoming and they are really helpful to everyone. You will not be discriminated like “hey look I that is Indian guy” like other countries but you will be noticed as “I think that techy is Indian man its great”.

People will help everyone in all aspects here. Unlike the other countries where there is an different tone in the people “I can help you but…”, in Ireland its more like “I’m sorry I can’t but you can do this….” which of course is more relieving.

Out of  100,000 Indian students who travel abroad for masters education every year around 1,000 of these choose to do MS in Ireland.

Another reason to choose MS in Ireland is Irelands fast growing tech sector. Ireland owns 9 of worlds top Global Software companies, 9 of worlds top Pharma Companies, 13 of worlds top Medical Technological companies, 9 of worlds top 10  US ICT companies,15 of the world’s top 25 Financial Services companies….to be continued and Ireland has been ranked as one of the best country for business so you can imagine how Ireland plays job market multiplication.After 2008 recession Ireland made its corporate tax 12.5% which least in world and this lead to a great revolution in world.

The first thing you hear from Indian student if someone is going to Ireland is that  is “Why are you going to Ireland go to US,UK or Canada or Australia man”. Huh but now I want to convince people that Ireland is also known as Silicon Valley of Europe so guys what are you waiting for Apply to Universities from Ireland.

  1. Sir, here you described a bit about fees Structure in Ireland for masters which according to you is 20 Lakhs but as per my knowledge, the cost of pursuing MS in Ireland is not more than 10 Lakhs. So, can you please explain us more on this?
    And also, there are lots of scholarships available specifically for MS students.

    1. if you are planning in UCD and Trinity then its 20 Lac and if you are planning in another universities you will have to pay atleast 12 to 15 lac

        1. part time jobs are quite hard to get but not impossible. You need to try hard for getting them because here preference for EU people is given first then after international people and part time jobs require experience in relevant field though it is work in shop hotel or cleaning work

      1. Hey jayesh,
        Am from mechanical stream, some consultants suggested me Ireland. but my confusion between German and Ireland, what are the difference between two of this.
        what the cost difference and opportunities after completion?

        1. Mechanical has less scope in ireland because ireland doesnt have much manufacturing business. Germany will be great choice.

    1. For students visa granted till the course period. If you are doing Master level course you will get 1 year graduate visa on which you can work full time. After one year you need to file work permit visa. Once you get work permit you can stay for 2 years or more depending on the duration.

  2. Hey Jayesh

    I am planning to pursue ms in IET from trinity college dublin. Now since it is a specialization in game programming….can you shed some light on the job prospects in this field in Ireland. I have prior 3 years of JAVA experience but no prior experience in this field

    1. If you have 3 year java exp then you can get jobs in Java easily and if you get good knowledge of game field you can get job in that field also but for gaming there are very few companies so scope will be quite lower.

      1. I am thinking of going to dublin for my masters in the firld of digital marketing. I am freasher and i have just joined my workplace and before going tobireland i wanted to have some in hand experience of about six months. Do you have an idea about the job opportunities in ireland innthe field of marketing or digital marketing? It will be a great help if you can give me some valuable input from your side!

        1. Hi Yash, If you see the irish job market IT is good here but you need to have good amount of experience atleast 2 – 3 years exp in your field then getting job is easier otherwise its a strong struggle so I would suggest take some experience and then come here.

  3. Hye jayesh…what is the job prospect for a mechanical engineer in ireland… I have got the offer letter from UL .. I have 2 years of experience in power plant maintenance and overhauling. Will i get any mechanical job

    1. Mechanical has not that much jobs in ireland so better to take admission in computer science domain.

  7. Hi Jayesh,
    Kudos to your efforts and you trying to clear all our doubts.
    Myself Hussain working in an MNC for 7 years in QA (Functional, Data WareHousing and Performance). I have explored to UCD Dublin website and got to know that Msc in Data Analytics is a 3 year course which costs around 10 lacks in fee and would add another 5 to 10 lacks for living expenses. Do we have any MS courses for 1 year and how are the job opportunities. After completing MS if we get an employer or sponsor then only we can apply for Work Permit ? Whether we have any universities in Ireland where the MS costs is less. Thanks in advance.

    I have total experience of 10yrs in Data, mainly Business Intelligence. I was looking for MSc in Cloud computing in NCI or DCU. I have 7.05 CGPA in my Bachalors with major in Electronics, but had 5 backlocks.
    I wanted to know, since the course which I am looking for is an upgrade from what my work experience is, will I be assumed as a fresher while trying to get a job or will my work experience in business intelligence be helpful? Also, this couse, being a Master of Science and of one year, will there be on campus recruitments? What salary can be expected with this course and my work experience?

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Hello Rahul, your 10 years experience will land you job in BI side as you have experience in that domain, it will be little difficuly for you to get job in cloud domain as you dont have experience in will be assumed as fresher if you dont have relevant experience. but yes there are plenty of BI jobs so you can try course related to that field. you can expect salary above 70k as you have 10 years of experience.

    1. Hello Shruthi, it will be difficult to get part time job in technical domain so you have to look for part time jobs in shops or restuarants, talking about full time job you have good experience so there are plenty of jobs in .net and data analytics related jobs are also available but you should have little experience in data domain.

        1. Hello Sushmita,
          MBA courses are good in very few colleges like UCD TCD but the jobs for MBA graduates are less than IT graduates. IT jobs are boom in Ireland so it will be bit difficult to find MBA or management jobs in Ireland as they prefer local or EU talent over international talent for management jobs. You can apply for Business Analyst type courses if you have interest in management but i would suggesnt IT is good here. You can start applying now for SEP 2020 intake.

    2. Hey! I wanted to do MS in management from trinity dublin college. What are the job prospects after this degree in ireland? Also i dont have any work experience and what are my chances of getting accepted?
      10th – 80%
      12th- 60%
      BBA- 75%

      1. Management jobs are very less in Ireland for international students so I would suggest try other countries like France, Germany as they are good in management jobs.

    2. Hi Pavithra, Highgrads,

      I am also planning to do MS in Ireland, although I have 12 years of experience in Telecom.

      Would like to know in which field I should go for MS which will be beneficial for more job opportunities in Ireland.

      Planning for MS in 2020.

      1. Hello sir
        I completed my graduation from computer science with 62% in 2019,now i want to pursue my post-graduation in project management. As i have low score in graduation so i think I’ll not be able to take admission in Universities in Ireland so can i choose Colleges? Is it good option and can I’ll get a good job there after my post graduation?

        1. Hello Aditya, if you are planning to do Project Management course you will need good amount of experience in Management side. Management courses are good here but for job you need to have minimum 5 to 6 years of experience in project management or else you need to have certifications of PMP and other management recognized certificates. Your project management skill also needs to come under critical skill so you have to do more research and then only decide to pursue this course.

  32. Hi,
    I received an offer for MSc in digital marketing from DCU, TU Dublin and DBS.
    1) Can you suggest which university is best amongst these for pursuing digital marketing?
    2) Is there scope for digital marketing in Ireland if I wish to work after graduation?

    1. Hi Richa DCU and TU Dublin are good university. Only thing is digital marketing has less scope in Ireland so you need to be careful. Try to get idea of job market from linked in and you can see how much scope it has in ireland, According to me DIGITAL MARKETING comes under IT domain and IT domain is good here in ireland.

  33. if you have experience in python getting job in python will be will struggle to get job if your domain and experience is different and course is different because you will be considered as fresher. its better to choose course with your experience and then find job.
