Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it

This briefing paper aims to supplement our knowledge on transitions into Irish higher education by exploring the knowledge and experiences of those who come to Ireland from other countries to study at Irish higher education institutions. It is based on a survey of 573 international students, across five higher education institutions, who studied in Ireland during 2015.

This first compendium has led to further publications where ‘pedagogical communities of practice’ continue to share our knowledge.
