Gap year in Ireland

Ireland is known as a land of gorgeous green landscapes, rich heritage, welcoming people, and vibrant cities. A gap year in Ireland will focus on improving your English skills so you can speak confidently in both formal and casual settings. These skills will serve you well in your future studies or in your career, regardless of your field. But during a gap year in Ireland, you can also explore the rustic Irish landscape, visit forts and castles that are centuries old, or stay in Dublin to enjoy the music scene. The advantage of taking an entire year in Ireland is that you can learn at your own pace, spend lots of time practicing your English, and become comfortable as an English speaker.

A wise investment

When you commit to a gap year in Ireland, you're looking for a program with loftier goals than a simple English course. Our year-long programs in Ireland are just that. If you are working on English for your career, you can choose a work placement program that combines specialized English training in the first few months followed by an unpaid internship in your field. If you're a student, some of our high school or university years in Ireland grant a diploma or admission to partner institutions upon graduation. Spending a gap year in Ireland is a major investment in time, energy, and money. With us, you can be certain that investment will pay off handsomely.
