Welcome to the first of our EducationUSA quarterly newsletters which will provide information about studying in the US at graduate and postgraduate level.

The Fulbright Commission assumed the remit of EducationUSA in 2010 and has been getting fully acquainted with the many different processes and vast amounts of information related to studying in the US. With a staff of two working as part of the EducationUSA service in Ireland, we provide unbiased general information and guidance to students, parents and councillors.
