India, 15th March, 2022: Students are the future of any nation and their education is the foundation towards a better tomorrow. India and Ireland both align with this belief and renowned institutions partner and engage in different exchange programs. Today, Irish Minister Robert Troy visited the north campus of University of Delhi to explore cross- border collaborations. During the meeting, delegates from both sides proposed different ideas of what could be the constituent parts of potential agreements that will further strengthen the partnership.
Addressing the delegates during the visit, Mr. Robert Troy, TD, Minister of State for Trade Promotion, Ireland stated, “Education is a key sector for both India and Ireland, and institutes on both sides recognise the value and support greater internationalisation of education to ensure the next cohort of students are industry ready. To achieve this, we understand the importance of meaningful partnerships; the collaboration between UCD and Delhi University is very welcome and a positive step forward to create opportunities for students to study and learn abroad whilst deepening the ties between India and Ireland. I’m delighted to know these initiatives are distinguishing India and Ireland as world-class education providers on the global stage.”
Adding to Mr. Troy’s statement, Mr. Yogesh Singh, the Vice-Chancellor of Delhi University, said, “Since India is at an exciting juncture, we are delighted to be a part in developing the skills of the next generation. Ireland is an internationally renowned provider of higher education with up-to-date career opportunities. Furthermore, via our key partnerships with UCD among others, learners can take full advantage of the foreign teaching in a blended learning format yet stay associated with India. This partnership allows Ireland to leverage the world-class facilities, ensuring students learn the most current methodologies and are at the cutting edge of learning.”
Celebrating its centenary, Delhi University is one of the most prestigious, preferred higher education institutes in India. Many students and teachers here get an opportunity to study and explore a range of exchange programs across the world, And Ireland is fast emerging as the preferred destination for international exchange.

Today, I am delighted that Minister Troy visited Delhi University and met the key-drivers of education in India as both India and Ireland are on the same mission to make world-class education accessible to all. Besides, cross-border collaborations are a revolution in the higher education industry and this partnership will not only boost India-Ireland’s bilateral relationship but also create a fine talent that will lead innovation for a sustainable tomorrow.
