A team from South East Technological University (SETU) recently travelled to India to promote the diverse and high-quality programmes offered by the university to the Indian student community.

The university participated in the Education in Ireland Roadshow, visiting major cities across the sub-continent.

This event served as a remarkable platform for showcasing the outstanding educational opportunities available at SETU and other esteemed higher education institutions in Ireland.

The SETU team, comprised of Fiona Purcell, Hannah Murphy, Professor Denis Harrington and Dr David Ryan, embarked on a trip that spanned key cities, including New Delhi, Pune, Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru and Kochi.

The crowning moment of the roadshow occurred when the team was cordially invited to the Irish Embassy, where they had the privilege of meeting Kevin Kelly, Ambassador of Ireland to India, along with SETU’s counterparts from other higher education institutions. This exclusive gathering at the embassy exemplified the collaborative spirit of Ireland and India in the field of education.

The roadshow’s centrepiece was the Education in Ireland fairs, where 18 Irish higher education institutions presented a wide array of academic programmes. These fairs provided an invaluable platform for Indian students to explore and discuss their higher education options in Ireland. The level of attendance and engagement at these fairs was remarkably high, with hundreds of attendees expressing their profound interest in SETU programmes.

Speaking about the trip, Hannah Murphy, International Officer at SETU in Carlow, said, “The enthusiasm and curiosity of the students and their families were truly remarkable. We remain committed to delivering world-class education and nurturing future leaders, and this roadshow was a fantastic opportunity to reach out to promising talent in India.”
