Programs Combining Learning, Culture & Fun

We are often asked why our programs are such a success with our students, after all most people don’t associate learning with fun. With us, fun is at the very heart of what we do. All our programs contain a healthy mix of Learning, Culture & Fun. We are always getting feedback from our students about their experiences, and almost without exception they tell us that they have just had the best fun they’ve ever had. Not surprisingly we often see younger brothers and sisters coming to us to take part in one of our programs that their older sibling took part in several years previously, and that it had been a fun life-changing experience for them.

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.

Experience A New Culture

Ireland has a vibrant cultural landscape that reflects its young, dynamic and changing population, merging modern trends with its own rich history, music, language and traditions, which combined with landscapes of stunning natural beauty, makes for a heady mix for visitors, students and inhabitants alike.

We recognise the importance of weaving both culture and tourism into an immersive learning experience and offer many tailor-made weekend excursions to many of Ireland’s popular tourist destinations as part of our student programs. These excursions will give a real and unique flavour of what our beautiful country has to offer.

Build Personal Development

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. With our vast experience developed over the last number of years, we understand that for most international students, the appeal is likely to be a combination of gaining a high-quality education, experiencing immersion in a new culture (and often a second language), gaining a global mindset and expanding future employment prospects. Without exception, every international student that has completed one of our programs will tell you that their personal development has been a huge benefit, and they can hold their heads up high with much more confidence than before.

Develop Life Experience & Friendships

The Irish are some of the happiest and welcoming people you’ll ever meet. It’s part of our genetic make-up that so often we are looking to have a laugh and enjoy ourselves. We also love to share their laughs and stories with visitors so every year our resident foreigners always feel very welcome. Hospitality plays a large role in irish culture, so you’ll likely get to know a lot of locals during your stay.. Although social circles (among locals) are very solid – friendships often last well beyond the length of a particular program. So many of our students are keen to make new friends, and the environment you will find yourself in with other like minded individuals will ensure new friendships that for many will last a lifetime. Trust us when we tell you that your experience of Irish life will stand to you wherever you are from and wherever you go in the world afterwards.

You looked like Santa Clause!! 

Thank you very much for your kindness! I will never forget you!!



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.

Thank you for five weeks! I relied entirely on you in Ireland and Swiss. I like you! See you again!!



In 2018 I was 20 years old and 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!

For the final year of studying business and finance, my college gave me the opportunity to travel Ireland to spend three months as an Intern with Equinox Education Services in Carlow in 2018.

Thanks to Equinox I have gained great work experience and got to enjoy living with a wonderful host family. I also got the opportunity to explore many beautiful places in Ireland and meet people from other parts of the world. My spoken and written English has improved steadily during my time here and I would have no hesitation in recommending Equinox to anyone wanting to learn English in this safe and beautiful country.
