Secondary School Abroad - A parent's perspective

  • Saorla spent a few months near Bordeaux in France

At EIL we take all feedback on board and really appreciate it when students and parents give us their perspective of our programmes!

Today, we received some lovely feedback from Saorla who has recently returned from her Secondary School in France experience. Saorla studied near Bordeaux and her mom, Niamh, gave us a parent's perspective on having her daughter take part on the Secondary School Abroad programme:

"Overall we have been delighted with our daughter's experience with EIL. All the main components came together perfectly. Our daughter felt welcomed and included immediately in all family events and daily life. We feel she had an authentic experience, she certainly gained in confidence and maturity. She felt supported at all times. Without doubt, the detailed application form and the thorough preparations required by EIL were a considerable factor in making her experience such a great success"

Thank you for your kind words, Niamh and we're delighted to hear that Saorla had such a positive experience in France!

We are now accepting applications for the Secondary School Abroad programmes which begin in Spring 2017, and we are able to consider applications for Autumn 2016 start on a case-by-case basis. Contact Aileen today if you're interested or would like to ask a question!
