FG unveils plan to attract international students

Fine Gael has unveiled a plan aimed at doubling the number of international students studying in Ireland by 2015.

The party says the move could generate €400m annually for the Irish economy and help ease financial difficulties for Irish colleges and universities.

The Fine Gael plan includes changes to the student visa system and the lifting of the moratorium on third-level recruitment.
