Groups Studying In Ireland
International students make an educational and cultural trip to Ireland
For the past 4 summers Equinox Education Services designed and ran a tailor made academic short term programs for Junior & Senior High school groups in Kilkenny and Carlow ( Ireland ).
Students from 13 to 17 came with their teachers to the medieval city of Kilkenny and undertook a program that ran for 3 weeks during the summer.
During the program the students learnt English as well as a variety of educational and cultural activities. Students stayed with local host families and were joined in classes each day by local students who acted as conversational partners or “Buddies”.
We had students from Spain , France , Germany , Saudi Arabia Japan on the program.
During their visit the students had the opportunity to visit Dublin, Waterford, Newgrange, Knowth, Kilkenny Castle as well as experience local sport and cultural highlights. In addition some students went on local radio to talk about their experience in Ireland.
When it came time to leave there were many tears and quite a few of the visitors are interested in returning to Ireland to study long term while all students expressed an interest to visit again.
