Ireland is a country that attracts thousands of people every year thanks to its luscious scenery, variety of exciting activities, friendly people and rich culture.

However, it also attracts many people to its shores thanks to the high level of education it offers, especially in terms of higher education.

With this in mind, Ireland had cause to celebrate recently as they ranked highly in a new survey conducted by the global student review website, ‘The Campus Advisor’, which looked at which countries were the best in the world for higher education.

Over a year, the website surveyed 17,824 students about the countries where they received their higher education degrees.
