Tailor-Made Programs

At the core of many of our programs is the development of communication skills in real life settings. As well as covering the four basic skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening, we have designed varying activities that gives our students opportunities to practice their conversational skills with local students in a relaxed but supervised environment at a level that’s tailored to suit them.

Safe Location

Ireland is internationally recognized as a friendly, safe country, which is backed up by statistical research and various surveys. For some, the prospect of leaving home and heading off into the unknown is daunting, but studying abroad is also an exciting challenge that often leads to improved career opportunities and a broader understanding of the way the world works. Choosing to study in Ireland, which is one of the safest locations in the world…there is no better option

The Irish have a huge maternal side and love to welcome or ‘mother’ new guests. If staying with a host family, you’re sure to be treated as one of the family. All of Ireland’s higher education institutions and Equinox Education Services have a designated staff member to whom international students can turn for any assistance. Simply put, we’re a friendly, welcoming bunch of people, and that’s why international students get so much out of the Irish experience.

Unrivalled Value For Money

An academic term or year abroad provides students with an invaluable opportunity for personal development, increasing cultural knowledge and awareness, and gaining confidence in using another language. The value for money we provide in facilitating this unique opportunity is second to none. When you consider the levels of support for students on our programs, this value becomes even more apparent.

I am 20 years old and currently studying business administration in Germany. As part of my studies I was given the opportunity to take an internship abroad. I selected Ireland for my internship country because from an early age I have always wanted to travel to Ireland where the scenery is so beautiful and natural. I spent three weeks working in Ireland and found the country so gorgeous and all people friendly and lovable. On weekends I visited various towns and cities and which were all unique and lovely. Ireland is so multifarious. There are beautiful Cliffs in places such as Howth Galway and the Cliffs of Moher, which contrast so much with modern cities like Dublin. Not forgetting the little Irish Pubs with live music and Guinness, which all made for an unforgettable experience. I enjoyed my time in Ireland and I’m definitely coming back!

I think this is one of merits of studying abroad in Ireland. You can find different cultures between your countries, and you can learn new things. You can find new way of thinking, and you can think about new choices. Studying in Ireland will make you change yourself, and it’s really good opportunity to make yourself different. I think I changed a lot after I came to Ireland. I met a lot of people in here, and they told me about their experiences of their life. I was shocked a lot, and impressed with their opinions, because all these thinking were absolutely new things for me. If I didn’t take this opportunity to come to Ireland to study, I wouldn’t know these precious opinions from foreigners. Their opinions were sometimes about school, about personality, jobs, or lifestyle. All of these became big help for me in thinking about my future, school life, everything. Ireland was great experience for me, and it will be great memory for me throughout whole my life. I hope you can also meet great people, see great places, and have great moments from your exchange experience. It wasn’t easy, but I can affirm that the experience of studying in Ireland will change yourself and your life forever.
