Indian students studying at the Technological University of the Shannon (TUS) gathered today to celebrate Diwali 2022, the festival of light, and showcased their traditional costumes, music, dance, and cuisine.
Diwali is not only celebrated in India but also in Southern Asia and is known as the Festival of Light. The festival coincides with the Hindu New Year and celebrates new beginnings and the victory of light over darkness.
Indian students enjoyed samosas and sweet delicacies specially prepared for the celebration. There are over 160 Indian students studying a range of programmes at Bachelor, Masters, and PhD levels at TUS.
The following disciplines are of particular interest to Indian students: Business, Accounting, Hospitality Management, Data Analytics, Software Engineering, Artificial Intelligence, Cloud Native Computing, Cyber Security, Digital Marketing, Nursing, Biopharmaceutical Technology, and Quantity Surveying.
Donnacha McNamara, VP of International at TUS, commented, “TUS remained connected with our Indian partners during the pandemic and committed to opening our representative office during this challenging time with One Step Global, located at Gurugram, India.
"It is heartening to see our Indian students celebrate Diwali back on campus this year. As we develop our new strategic plan, we will commit to the internationalisation of our six campuses and connecting our graduates with industry in the Midwest and Midlands regions”.
TUS opened a representative office in India two years ago and this has contributed to making our campuses attractive to Indian students when selecting their choice for higher education.
Karl Turley, deputy director of International Relations at TUS, will travel to education fairs in New Delhi, Pune, Mumbai, Chennai, and Bangalore from November 18-27, 2022. Learn more: https://eduirelandsouthasia.com/november-2022/
