Parents, High-School Students and Educators Invited to Learn More about Higher Education Opportunities in Ireland
Parents, high-school students and educators from Oak Park and surrounding communities are invited to attend an Education in Ireland Irish Universities Open House at Fenwick High School in Oak Park, IL on April 26th. Attendees will have a chance to learn more about education opportunities in Ireland and why an increasing number of Americans are choosing to study there. Education in Ireland is an initiative of the Irish government that highlights the advantages of higher education in Ireland.
Last year, nearly 7,000 US students selected Ireland for their study abroad experience. They are attracted to the country’s reputation for excellence in liberal arts, engineering, science and technology, with universities that produce intellectuals, visionaries, innovators and thought-leaders that inspire, enlighten and change the world.
In Ireland, U.S. students pursue undergraduate and graduate degrees from internationally renowned universities at a comparatively 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 university networks supported by the Erasmus program, the European Union’s student exchange program.
The event takes place:
- Thursday, April 26
- 7-9:00 pm
- Fenwick High School
- 505 Washington Boulevard
- Oak Park, IL 60302-2260
The Open House is free and 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.
Universities represented at the fair include: 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.

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.
