Broaden your horizons and intercultural competence in the Emerald Isle.

Experience Ireland’s world-renowned history, heritage and culture in the Land of a Thousand Welcomes. Study for a year or semester in one of our highly-rated partner universities and you’ll learn from top Irish and international tutors, in modern facilities, shoulder to shoulder with students from all over the world.

Ireland offers unforgettable experiences in and outside the classroom. Explore iconic landscapes and the renowned nightlife on your weekends, and tick off The Cliffs of Moher and Book of Kells off your bucket list. You’ll be based in a buzzing Irish city, living on-campus or with a local family in homestay accommodation.

Ireland is a safe and famously welcoming English-speaking country. It is the perfect place to develop your independence and immerse yourself in a different culture and lifestyle. Third level institutions in Ireland encourage critical thinking and innovation in students; you will be both challenged and enchanted by university life.

Ireland’s castles, museums, green landscapes and cosmopolitan cities are waiting to be explored. You can even expand your adventures to the rest of Europe with short hop flights to other European capitals on your weekends.
