Visiting Ireland for a one week stay with your classmates is always a great experience but attending an Irish secondary school and sampling the education system is even better!
Our FL school integration programme has become extremely popular over the past years as international students get to meet lots of new native friends and get a real insight into how another education system works. At the same time you get a similar experience to a mini-stay which includes lots of afternoon activities and an exciting full day excursion.
How It Works
We recommend registering your interest at least four to five months in advance of when your group would like to arrive. The process to arrange the integration programme can take a considerable amount of time in planning and organisation.
Once you have decided upon a location and an Irish school for the integration has been confirmed then the rest of the schedule can be carefully planned. Our FL staff will guide you through the entire process from start to finish and help you prepare the following:
- Airport transfers
- Accommodation (host family or residence)
- Afternoon activities
- Evening Activities
- Full day excursions
- Any special requirements which your students might have
Throughout the entire stay FL staff will ensure your group are happy at all times. In most of our integration schools there is also a local coordinator who is responsible for the planning of the programme.
Below you can view a sample schedule of a typical integration programme. It is important to note that groups must start integration on a Monday morning therefore weekend arrivals (Saturday or Sunday) is essential.
