Ireland's success in high education quality

24th November, 2017

Though Ireland has a population of only around 4.5 million, the country and its people have had a major and long-lasting impact on the world in terms of Politics, Literature, the Arts and the Sciences, including Medicine and Dentistry. While the reasons for this out-sized influence are many, most people attribute Ireland’s success to the high quality of its education system.

The Irish Government invests over Euro 800 million annually in research in Ireland’s higher education institutions. The impact of this funding is that Ireland’s higher education institutions now lead the world in an increasing number of fields. Irish universities are in the top 1 per cent of research institutions in the world in terms of research impact in 19 fields, creating a unique opportunity for undergraduate and postgraduates to join research programmes that are driving innovation and change and saving lives worldwide.

For a small country, Ireland has produced a remarkable number of world ranking scientists and scholars and, by joining the Irish education system, we hope you will be inspired to create and develop systems and products that will change the world.

George Boole (1816 – 64) was the professor of Mathematics in UCC when he developed Boolean Algebra, the basis for all computing languages and, in fact, the foundation of the digital age.

Dr Francis Rynd (1801-1861) the inventor of the hypodermic needle, worked as a doctor at Dublin’s Meath Hospital (which is still in operation to this day, since its founding in 1753). During his time at the hospital, he began working on producing a drip needle specifically for the intravenous administrating of drugs and experienced a breakthrough in May of 1844, when he developed the first hypodermic needle.

Mr John Joly (1857-1933) was a pioneer in using radiotherapy as a treatment for cancer.

As a geologist, he devised instruments to determine the unique melting point of each mineral, which ultimately led him to the discovery of the importance of radioactivity. This in turn led to developing the treatment of cancer through radiotherapy. Though just one of his many accomplishments, this discovery has left an indelible mark on medical history.

Professor James Francis “Frank” Pantridge (1916 – 2004), the inventor of the portable defibrillator was born in Hillsborough, County Down. The portable defibrillator has single-handedly transformed the practice of emergency paramedic services and has saved the lives of countless cardiac patients since its introduction. It was in 1957 that Pantridge and his colleague Dr. John Geddes introduced the first version of the portable defibrillator, which was installed in a Belfast ambulance in 1965.

With such inspirational figures woven into the history of the Irish Universities, there is no doubt that studying Medical Sciences in Ireland, through the IUMC, is a move in the right direction. As the only English speaking country in the Eurozone (and soon to be the only English speaking country in the EU), Ireland is an easy country to settle in to. Ireland is a very friendly and safe country – but don’t just take our word for it!

In 2010, Lonely Planet named Ireland as the friendliest country in the world. The Global Peace Index ranks Ireland as 13th most peaceful place, out of 158 nations worldwide. Needless to say, around every University in Ireland there is a vibrant Malaysian community that new students can depend on. Aside from the support of the Universities and the community, the Malaysian Embassy in Dublin, the Irish Embassy in Kuala Lumpur and Irish Government agencies are all supportive of new students travelling to Ireland.

The Irish Universities and Medical Schools Consortium (IUMC), represents four of Ireland’s top universities: NUI Galway (NUIG), Trinity College Dublin (TCD), University College Cork (UCC) and University College Dublin (UCD) and enrols up to 100 students from Malaysia and the ASEAN region each year, to embark on their pursuit of a truly inspiring Medical and Dentistry education.

For further information, queries and application forms for the September 2018 intake, please contact the IUMC office in Kuala Lumpur at +603 2615 7987 or email us at info@iumc.com.my. Find us on FB / YouTube: IUMC MALAYSIA.
