THE SCHOOL YEAR IN IRELAND PROGRAMME offers students a unique opportunity: learn the language and experience the essence of Irish culture while studying for a school year which can be validated.
This programme is aimed at secondary and sixth form students who wish to broaden their cultural horizons and enrich their personal development, in addition to learning English in a warm and welcoming environment.
The English course
THE SCHOOL The organisation in Ireland has a wide variety of schools distributed all over the country, among which are: state and private schools, semi-private schools, secular or religious schools and boarding schools.
With a family or at boarding school, either of these two options is equally good for the student; depending on their personality.
For us, Irish families stand out for their kindness and willingness to welcome the students and integrate them into the family environment, making them participate in everyday activities as another family member.
In boarding schools, students lodge in the school’s facilities, sharing a bedroom and toilets. Boarding schools in Ireland are austere and of great tradition. During school holidays, students stay with families.
For the development of the school year programme, Leaders works with an organisation in Ireland, in charge of supervising the programme through local coordinators. The students are in direct contact with the coordinators, who help and support them with all matters of the school year and their adaptation to family living.
