The Irish Students Abroad

An article in yesterday's Irish Independent reports a jump in the numbers of Irish undergraduate and post-graduate students at college elsewhere in Europe. Apparently, the proportion of Irish students abroad almost doubled to 13.8pc between 2002 and 2006 (above the EU average of 2.6pc), according to the Eurydice Key Education Data report. It is also indicated that almost 18,000 Irish students were studying for primary degrees or post-graduate qualifications elsewhere in Europe in 2006. There are also about 5,000 Irish students in the US.
