Last Friday Levant Education teamed up with Enterprise Ireland and Dublin International Foundation College to provide an agent training workshop focussing on Higher Education opportunities in Ireland.
Director of Enterprise Ireland, Turkey branch, Nil Misirli, and David Mitchell lead the workshop sessions on HE programmes, key selling points and visa applications.
Attendees enjoyed the opportunity to learn more about Ireland as a destination for HE students, as well as a delicious Irish lunch.
With the number of Turkish students learning English in Ireland having increased significantly in recent years, knowledge about and awareness of Ireland generally is evident. This helps education counsellors to recommend Ireland to students looking for UG and PG courses also. Students in Turkey typically look to agencies and word of mouth for information about university options abroad.
Canan Yucal, from HIT international education, said after the event, “The workshop was extremely helpful for me. I realised that I did not have enough information about Ireland and I also understood that the Irish Embassy is helpful when it comes to visas”.
I will now advise clients to consider Ireland as an alternative to Canada and other markets”.
