Personalised. Professional. We care about our students.

In general, Transition Year, 5th Year and 2nd Year are the most popular years.

We will advise you on what flights to book. If there are students travelling from the same city, we advise parents that they all fly on the same flight so that they can travel together. We will always be there at Cork airport waiting.

Irish secondary schools offer many extracurricular activities. We recommend that students get involved in these activities because it’s a great way to make friends. We will also give students information about activities and sports they can do in the town where they live.

Mostly, word of mouth.

Of course. The earlier you reserve, the more options you have. However, it depends on availability.

Every student has a coordinator who the student will communicate with every week in the first month and then every 3/4 weeks afterwards, more or less.

Without doubt! If you make a big effort to get involved in Irish life, you will meet lots of new people, you will speak and practice a lot and, of course, your English level will improve.

Of course! We ask that you visit after the first term and only during school holidays or weekends.
