IUMC Study Medicine and Dentistry in Ireland 2021

Why do international students continue to choose Ireland?

There are many reasons why students from all over the world come to study in Ireland. Ireland has always had a reputation for producing excellent clinicians, with Irish-trained doctors and dentists holding leading positions in the world’s top medical institutes. Away from the classroom, it’s also a great place for students! Almost 40% of the population of Ireland is under the age of 40, and Dublin, Cork and Galway are all vibrant cosmopolitan cities with great restaurants, cafes and nightlife.

But don’t take our word for it! Our student’s are the greatest champions for spreading the message of why choosing to study in Ireland was such a great decision, so we’ll let them take over from here!
