Irish universities have long enjoyed a distinguished reputation across the US for their traditions of research and teaching in the liberal arts, social science, science, engineering, and medical disciplines. As these four cities gear up to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, we’re looking forward to engaging with students, parents and college counselors.”

The following universities will be represented on the tour: Dublin City UniversityNational University of Ireland GalwayNational University of Ireland MaynoothTrinity College DublinUniversity College CorkUniversity College, Dublin and the University of Limerick.

Just last week, the National University of Ireland Maynooth was chosen by The Princeton Review for inclusion in the forthcoming edition of its annual “best colleges” guidebook, “The Best 376 Colleges: 2012 Edition”.

Top reasons US students study in Ireland:

  • A friendly, safe country: Ireland was voted by Lonely Planet as the world’s friendliest country in 2008 and 2010.  In 2009, it was ranked 12th in the Global Peace Index.  The island’s varied environment is ideal for outdoor pursuits like climbing, water sports, and all kinds of ball and team sports.
  • An English-speaking country: Close cultural, economic and educational links with the English-speaking world, especially the US.
  • Internationally recognized qualifications and extensive choice: Broad range of programs in highly respected business schools, centers of scientific and technology excellence, as well as renowned language, humanities and arts faculties.
  • A supportive learning environment: Dedicated international offices work closely with academic, administrative and specialist staff to fully support students throughout their time in Ireland. Through these support structures, students receive direct access to information, facilities, services and staff.
  • An innovative and creative culture: Rich in cultural heritage with a history of world-leading innovation. From the flamboyance of Oscar Wilde to mold-breaking James Joyce; from John Bell’s pioneering quantum physics to Nobel Laureate Ernest Walton, Ireland’s innovative and creative culture is an integral part of the Irish experience.
  • Distinguished graduates: Graduates of Irish universities are innovators in their fields, leaders in their communities and ambassadors for excellence around the world.
  • The presence of leading global companies in Ireland: Companies that require a skilled, educated and highly capable workforce to help drive their success choose to locate in Ireland. They include Google, Facebook, Pfizer, Apple and Intel to name just a few.

Next week, Dallas gets a head-start on its St. Patrick’s Day festivities as Irish international rugby star Frankie Sheahan and representatives from Irish Universities hit the city to showcase Ireland’s world-class higher-education opportunities. Sheahan, a graduate of University College Cork and one of Ireland’s most popular and entertaining motivational speakers, will address two events hosted by Education in Ireland. His talk will focus on how sports shaped his college experience and created a foundation for his career success.

Both events will be held in city center venue Arlington Hall at Lee Park, 3333 Turtle Creek Blvd., Dallas.  The first is a student fair on Tues. March 8 from 4:00-8:00 p.m.; the second is an invitation-only breakfast briefing for high-school principals and counselors on Wed. March 9 from 8:00-9:30 a.m.

The following universities will be represented on the tour: Dublin City University, National University of Ireland Galway, National University of Ireland Maynooth, Trinity College Dublin, University College Cork, University College Dublin and the University of Limerick. Many share an association with Texas-based colleges, including Southern Methodist University, Texas A&M, Texas Tech University, The University of Texas at Austin, and The University of Texas at Dallas. Just last week, the National University of Ireland Maynooth was chosen by The Princeton Review for inclusion in the forthcoming edition of its annual “best colleges” guidebook, “The Best 376 Colleges: 2012 Edition”.

Ireland: A top destination for international students:

Today, more international students than ever are choosing Irish Universities for their undergraduate degrees. Beyond a reputation for producing distinguished career-ready graduates with top-class, universally accepted qualifications, students are drawn to the country for its generous hospitality, cultural traditions, diverse outdoor activities and a vibrant young population. In fact, Lonely Planet ranked Ireland as the World’s Friendliest Country in 2008 and 2010. They’re especially attracted by the country’s reputation for excellence in the liberal arts. From language and literature to film and theater, Ireland’s universities consistently produce renowned intellectuals and thought-leaders that inspire, enlighten and entertain the world. Among the full-time US students, nearly 50 percent are liberal arts majors—pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees at an affordable cost. They benefit from a network of international offices with academic, administrative and specialist staff dedicated to fully supporting them throughout their time in Ireland. They also gain from unprecedented access to the extensive European networks supported by the Erasmus program. With interdisciplinary combinations that range from digital humanities to the latest nano-technologies, Irish universities have empowered generations of students with the knowledge and expertise that helped advance Ireland’s competitiveness in the global marketplace. It is the highly educated, English-speaking workforce and culture of entrepreneurship that compelled top technology companies like Intel, Cisco, Facebook and Google to plant substantial operations in Ireland.

Irish universities are bridged with US counterparts in virtually every state, making the US Ireland’s top academic partner. For the US institutions, the relationships offer a unique portal to Europe, further expanding the reach of their entrepreneurial researchers. And in the connected classrooms and research labs, students are benefiting from a globalized education experience. The student fair is open to high-school students, parents, principals and other parties interested in learning more about the Irish student experience and getting practical tips on how to apply to Irish institutions, and access financial aid. To register for the event, please email: eduireland@enterprise-ireland.com or sign up through the Education in Ireland Facebook page.

Julia Roberts surprised 350 guests at the Ebell of Los Angeles when she turned up this evening to present Paul Rudd with his

award as the ‘Honorary Irishman’ at the US-Ireland Alliance’s Oscar Wilde: Honoring the Irish in Film event.

One never knows who is going to turn up at the popular, casual party that saw Tom Cruise honor J.J. Abrams last year and Kate Winslet honor her CAA agent and friend, Hylda Queally, the year before.

In addition to Rudd, casting agents Ros and John Hubbard were honored with an Oscar Wilde. Sarah Bolger was the recipient of the Wilde Card, the award that recognizes emerging talent in film. Queally introduced her client who accepted by video as Bolger is in Pittsburgh filming a Fox pilot, Locke and Key. American Airlines, Culture Ireland and the Irish Film Board sponsored the sixth annual pre- Academy Awards party.

In 2006, Roberts co-starred on Broadway with Rudd and Bradley Cooper in Richard Greenberg’s play Three Days of Rain. She has visited Ireland several times, including in 1996 to film Neil Jordan’s Michael Collins, with Liam Neeson and Aidan Quinn.
