This is a course for students wishing to spend a full academic year (nine months) in Cahersiveen’s local secondary school. Students live with one of our host families and attend TY (transition year) at Colaiste na Sceilge which combines a full range of subjects on the Irish curriculum with a series of extra curricular activities designed to increase students’ social awareness, responsibility and maturity in the world outside of school.
This is an ideal way to immerse yourself in English language and Irish culture. We will do our best to place you with a host family where a son or daughter of the family is attending the same school. Host families are aware of the challenges facing long-term students and offer a calm, safe and welcoming environment for their international students.
