Our programs are affordable, authentic and accessible to students.
We arrange pre-program professional development in study abroad, and site visits for your administration and faculty

GENERAL LEARNING OUTCOMES
Many of our students who have come to Ireland had not previously traveled abroad. Every single student we have had here, without exception, called it a ‘life-changing’ experience. Every single student we have had has described the outcome as entirely positive, engaging and formative. Ireland is friendly, and people are interested in meeting with students. It is a great first step into the wider world, and for many, the first of many journeys.
- Experience of global travel
- Experience of a different culture
- Personal development
- History in context –social, cultural, economic and political development of a community through time
- Critical comparison and evaluation
- Social codes and Social difference
SPECIFIC LEARNING OUTCOMES
We tailor the trip to suit the students. Sometimes, the group is very focused on a particular field of studies. Sometimes, there are students drawn from different disciplines, and an interdisciplinary cultural experience is what’s required. Together, with your faculty, we draw up a curriculum that fits what you want. Critical and comparative thinking are at the core of all we teach, and we use Irish experiences, past and present, to emphasize shared narratives, common experience, empathy and global citizenship. If your group is mixed, and you are including community members, alumni, first-time travellers and students from different disciplines, we recommend an interdisciplinary cultural trip. This will include history, culture, politics, economics, arts, cultural activities and community service projects. However, if you have a class that are studying a particular course, we can offer the following tracks:
- Peace Studies/Political Science/ Criminal Justice/ Civil Rights
- Humanities : History/ Literary Studies , Arts, Languages, Theatre Studies
- International Business/ Entrepreneurship
- Nursing & Healthcare- an International Perspective
