French Ambassador and Delegation from Universities in France visit AIT
On Monday 30th January, the French Ambassador H.E. Mr Jean Pierre Thébault, a delegation from our French partner university programmes including
Professor Ciarán Ó Catháin commented
As an Institution, AIT has continually highlighted the importance of international education in the formation of our students. This extends not just to studying overseas, but also to actively engaging with international students who are registered here. That opportunity to develop a global mindset will not alone be of benefit in securing employment, but in positioning Ireland as an outward-looking, open and engaging society.
Professor Ciarán Ó Catháin when speaking to the students said, “I know personally, and am also aware through the excellent work of our International Office, that the French students attending AIT fully integrate into the life of this learning community. They are also an integral part of life in Athlone and I trust that when they return to their own families that their experiences here in Ireland will live long in their memories.”
