Ireland’s International Education Strategy 2010-15

In a world of increasing globalisation and interconnectedness, with the emergence of new powerhouse economies and the reorientation of the world economy, Ireland needs to take a strategic approach to developing relationships that will be of national importance in the coming years.

The Irish education system has a critical role to play in Ireland’s international engagement and in the development of these global relationships. The ambition set out in this five-year strateg is for Ireland to become a global leader in the provision of high-quality education to the next generation of leaders, entrepreneurs, and decision makers, who will make a difference in their own countries and who will form vital networks of influence for Ireland.

The interests of students are at the heart of our concerns. An education in Ireland should be transformational experience that adds significant value to the career outcomes and personal development of students.

Ireland is not seeking to position itself as a mass-market player. As the High Level Group points out in this report, Ireland’s eventual success will be judged not by how many international students we educate but by who we educate, and how well.

Ireland has strong advantages in this area. Education is practically part of the Irish DNA. Ireland’s education system has a long history of international engagement and is globally respected.
