AFS is excited to announce the new program now available to Ireland for semester programs in conjunction with EIL Ireland. You will be prepared by AFS volunteers here in Australia for your program in Ireland, however the program in Ireland will be run and facilitated by EIL Ireland. We work closely with EIL Ireland to ensure all strict requirements are met with regards to support and safety of AFS participants while on the program.
You can be placed anywhere in Ireland, yet most placements are urban, suburban, small town or rural. In general, small towns, villages or rural areas. Host families in Ireland receive a small subsidy to assist with the cost of food and hosting AFS participants.
For this program you will be placed in an exclusive private school in Ireland, which are usually single sex.
