Our Faculty-Led Programs are customized for experiential learning and global citizenship in a global classroom.

13680444_1087467251307552_3724849336336424731_o (1)Faculty share their vision and academic goals, and we manage the rest.

We collaborate at every level with our partner universities: from program development and cross-cultural exchange to in-country delivery.

Every program is different. We’ll work closely with you to design the tailor-made solution for your class, timeline, and budget.

Our local knowledge and study abroad expertise (based on years of producing study abroad programs) allow us to offer innovative and heritage-rich programs with the right balance of learning and leisure activities.

Our teams are committed to provide structure, guidance, and support every step of the way. We’ll be on the ground, on the phone and on call whenever you or your students need us (and before you know you need us).

 

“I want to commend Learn International for its extraordinary work facilitating our faculty-led study abroad trip during May and June 2016.

 

Learn was accommodating throughout, and was able to arrange our housing and tours—on short notice and during Ireland’s busy centenary year—seemingly effortlessly.

 

This proved not only that Learn’s staff works well under pressure, but that the company has fostered the local relationships required to make this happen. This was the kind of trip in which the students broke out in spontaneous applause for the bus drivers.

 

Our in-country coordinator, Katie, was a kind of organizational genius. She could have run our trip, or for that matter a medium-sized country, alone, with great success.

Chris and Cara had told us that they would be available “24-7.” What they didn’t tell us was that that meant that, in many cases, they’d be there, on the ground, in person, in between arranging the complicated trips of all their other clients, welcoming us with the most perfect poise.

 

Learn International sets a new standard. We look forward to working with them in the future.”

Programs in Ireland

3We tailor each program to university requirements so academic credit is easily obtained. Home-stay accommodation is a key part of the program as it further supports cultural exchange and immersion.

Students develop a deeper understanding of the context of their academic disciplines; something only possible outside a classroom. All program start dates are flexible and based around your schedule.

odu-170As a long-time faculty leader of short-term study abroad programs, I’ve worked with several academic partners.

 

My experience with Learn International has greatly exceeded my expectations. I look forward to returning next year to build on our successes and cultivate long-term relationships with our community partners in Donegal.

 

I highly recommend Learn International to all faculty and study abroad departments building faculty-led programs in Ireland or elsewhere.”
