More than 2,000 students have studied in Ireland over the past 45 years as part of our fellowship programme. You will read here about their positive experiences, the skills they have learned and also about their experience of studying in Ireland. Fellows bring a unique perspective which enriches the educational experience in higher education institutions in Ireland as they address global challenges. In the course of their studies in Ireland, participating fellows are provided with opportunities to learn more about Ireland.

The Ireland Fellows Programme aims to provide early career professionals, women and men, with leadership potential, opportunities to undertake a Master’s course in an Irish higher education institution. On completion of their studies, graduates will have acquired relevant skills and knowledge and will be better positioned to influence the advancement of national social, economic and development priorities. Fostering women’s leadership capacity is a priority. On return, graduates are expected to resume work and put their acquired skills into good use for the benefit of their home country.
