Department of Education and Skills releases statement on International Education Reforms

Following today’s protest by students and staff hit by college closures, the Department of Education has released a joint statement with the Department of Justice. It commits the government to signing off on reform plans ‘in the next two weeks’.

“The two Departments have … produced a package of reforms to the student immigration system for international education which will be brought to Government for its approval in the next two weeks. These reforms will drive a restructuring in the sector which will improve the overall quality of offering to international students, improve protection for learners, enhance Ireland’s reputation and diminish negative impacts on the Irish labour market and social protection costs, strongly in line with the goals of Ireland’s international education strategy.”
