Student Ambassador Awards 2014

24 April 2014

The Education in Ireland Ambassador Programme 2014 celebrated the achievements of its student ambassadors on 11 April at Farmleigh House in the Phoenix Park, Dublin. The 2014 Programme has seen 52 student ambassadors from 16 institutions and 11 different countries promote Ireland as a desirable study-abroad destination.

On a bright sunny day the student ambassadors, college representatives and embassy ambassadors enjoyed mid-morning refreshments in the beautiful Farmleigh conservatory and a tour of the House before the Minister for Education and Skills, Ruairi Quinn, arrived to present the student ambassadors with their certificates of achievements.

Representing RCSI on the day was fourth-year medicine student Moyser Mulla (who attended despite having to sit an exam in the afternoon).
