Study abroad options for Irish teens

Study abroad during your Transition Year or even during the school holidays to improve your foreign language skills. Stein Study runs study abroad programmes specifically tailored for Irish students. Each course is offered through a top language school in only the best destinations across France, Spain and Germany. It is becoming increasingly popular for Irish students to spend some or even all of their Transition Year abroad and they are really reaping the benefits.

Here’s what student Seana had to say about her time studying in France:

“Yes, I think my language skills have improved. Having gone on this trip, I finally got my head around the grammars. It helped me to think in French and I feel I can construct sentences better on the spot”.

And just as importantly, about the fun she had:

“The most fun parts of the trip was firstly, the free time we were given. This time allowed us to arrange a separate trip on the Sunday to Paris. I also enjoyed independently, touring Rouen- seeing the Notre Dame Cathedral and eating out and meeting up with friends in the evening”.

Here’s a summary of a few of our top destinations and study abroad programmes:

Bonjour La France!

  • La Rochelle

A firm favourite with Irish students; this magnificent harbour town in France offers plenty to do and experience. Our partner language school InLingua, is located in the centre of the town and close to the beaches making it ideal for exploring the vibrant streets, shops and markets between classes and even sailing and surfing opportunities if that’s your thing.

Loches is a calm and safe destination for students with plenty to do and see.
