Program Design

Participants will fly into Dublin and begin the program there before traveling by charter bus to Cork, the base for the rest of the time. Classes meet morning and afternoon, Monday through Thursday, except the last week of the program when the group will depart for the final excursion. One three-day weekend is open for independent travel and there are two group excursions to other areas of Ireland as well.  The last night of the program is spent back in Dublin in the Trinity College dormitories, making departure easier for everyone.  The 2018 June Ireland Information Sheet provides more details.

Money Matters

It is each applicant's responsibility to share information about cost with family members who need to know and understand how the payment system works.    Arts and Sciences summer programs require a $200 non-refundable deposit at the time of application.  That amount is deducted from the program fee.  More information on how to pay the deposit is included in the online application documents.  The 2018 June Ireland Estimated Budget will be linked here by October 1 before applications open to help students compare programs and plan for study abroad. Costs are subject to change based on the currency exchange rate and the number of participants.

Except for summer tuition and fees billed through the Bursar’s Office, all payments for this program are due before the end of the Spring 2018 semester.

There are a number of scholarships available for study abroad students.  Below is a partial list to get you started.
