Enterprising?
Enterprising 
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Studying Abroad

Why study abroad? Many studies show that a period spent abroad enriches a student’s life in both the academic and professional fields. The experience improves language-learning, intercultural skills, self-reliance and self-awareness. Many employers value this experience highly and it can increase the students' employability and job prospects going forward.

Go to Study Abroad Section

Students opt to study abroad for different reasons: the entry requirements may be easier; you may have access to courses abroad that are not available in Ireland; you may simply want the experience of studying outside Ireland. It is important to consider the differences between studying in Ireland and studying abroad, in particular: Application procedures, Duration of courses, College Fees and Living Expenses.
