In a joint statement, the Higher Education Authority (HEA), Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI) have stated that Ireland has the ability to become a global hub for learning and research and that the country should be ambitious in seeking to attract the brightest talent to come from all over the world to study here.

The organisations made the statement in advance of a major conference organised by the HEA and QQI taking place today (Monday 11th) at Dublin Castle on Internationalisation in Irish higher education. The conference will hear that over one in ten students in Irish institutions are from overseas and that post-Brexit, Ireland is in an even better place than now to attract students, especially from Asia, who may wish to pursue their studies and research in an English speaking institution.
