Education

A master's degree is an academic degree granted to individuals who have undergone study demonstrating a mastery or high-order overview of a specific field of study or area of professional practice.

In its broadest sense, education can be defined as any formative experience that has some sort of effect on an individual. This consequently can affect the way the individual, or student, thinks, feels, or acts. Pedagogy is an important term in education that refers to the methodology of teaching.  

Ireland lately implemented a law, which mandates all students attending university education to apply for government loans to allow them achieve their higher academic dreams. First official language is Irish, also known as Irish Gaelic, but English (the second official language) is more widely used. The national capital is Dublin. Ireland is famous for celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day (17 March) all over the world.
