How Our Programs Work
A typical study trip to Ireland with the Institute of Study Abroad Ireland is between 9 and 16 days in Ireland. We often begin the process by inviting study abroad directors and/or interested faculty to attend our site visit/professional development trips to Ireland. These five-day visits to Ireland are an excellent way to prepare for a sustainable, affordable, academically focused study trip for students.You can also join an online professional development seminar, and view an introductory tutorial on preparing to lead an educational trip to Ireland.
Each student study trip is tailored to the requirements of the faculty and institution. We will co-design a program that will be a relevant and effective course component. This may be an interdisciplinary program, or it may be focused on a particular field of studies. Either way, our expert lecturers will work with you untilthe study program has the learning outcomes you require. Our team will make sure that the classroom work, field trips, cultural activities, meals and accommodation are all coordinated for you, that the program is academically robust and professional, safe, enjoyable and affordable. Sounds too good to be true?

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, please let us know and we can tailor your trip accordingly.
