In the past three or four decades, after becoming a member of the European Union, Ireland quickly turned from Europe’s poorhouse to Europe’s economic powerhouse. Structural reforms have led to a viable boost and attracted many multinational corporations - and especially technology companies - to set up their European headquarters in Ireland, including the likes of Google, Airbnb, Pfizer, Dell and others. Therefore, Ireland offers numerous opportunities for graduates with an international background. If you study in Ireland, you stand a good chance at finding a job and staying in the country after you graduate.
It also may be possible to stay in Ireland after you complete your studies for the purpose of seeking employment under the Irish Third Level Graduate Scheme. This scheme exists to allow legally resident non-EU third level graduates to remain in Ireland in order to look for employment or apply for a green card/work permit.
