About the Program

Program Description

Spend your summer immersed into Irish language and culture in the village of An Cheathrú Rua in Connemara, the heart of Irish-Gaelic-speaking Ireland. You'll immerse into the Irish experience, including accommodation with an Irish-speaking/bilingual family so that you can practice as you learn in seminars, lectures, and field trips. Courses are designed for all levels of Irish language learners, from beginning to advanced. Field trips around the region and traditional Irish entertainment in the evenings round out this incomparable experience.

Program Structure

You'll enroll in 1 course at your language level. Courses meet for about 90 contact hours/6 credits. You may earn a total of 6 credits (up to 90 contact hours).

You'll take a language placement exam after you arrive in Ireland. Based on the results, you'll be placed in a language class at your language level. To ensure that you receive credit for the language level you place into, have your home school pre-approve courses at several levels before you leave for Ireland. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.

Where You'll Study

Founded in 1845, the National University of Ireland Galway hosts 17,000 students on its central campus along the River Corrib. Attend class side-by-side with Irish and other international students for an integrated experience in western Ireland’s largest, oldest university.
