Workshop between Irish Institutions and BOSSA member agencies

On October 31, 2014, The Minister for Education and Skills of Ireland, Jan O’Sullivan TD, concluded a seven day trade mission to China. Minister O’Sullivan was accompanied by senior staff from Enterprise Ireland, as well as representatives of 12 higher education institutions, each of which are actively involved in China.

During the course of her visit, a workshop co-organized by Enterprise Ireland and BOSSA, was held on the afternoon of October 27th at Kempinski hotel in Beijing. The main goal for arranging the workshop was to increase awareness, enhance mutual understanding and expand cooperation between Irish higher education institutions and BOSSA’s member agencies in order to further benefit Chinese students studying in Ireland.

During the workshop, Minister Jan O’Sullivan and Mr. Sang Peng, president of BOSSA gave their opening addresses to welcome the Irish institutions and BOSSA’s member agencies, followed by a comprehensive visa analysis from the visa officer of the Irish Embassy to China. A Q&A session also was included in order to provide an opportunity for direct communication between BOSSA member agencies and the Irish Minister, the Irish Ambassador to China as well as the Irish Institutional representatives.

Currently, there are approximately 5,000 Chinese students each year coming to study in Ireland, or studying in Irish-run programmes in China.
