Hear what our past students had to say...


I really enjoyed my time in Ireland! The Blended Programme gave me good experiences, meeting new people, learning a new culture and language. I learned a lot at the Irish Wheelchair Association Carlow where I did my internship. I also learned a lot studying the Human Growth and Development and Work placement module. The time flew because we were having so much fun. I can't believe it's already over but I will never forget it. Blended Programme thanks for everything!


The Blended Programme was great! It was an amazing combination of the internship and college. I've learned so much at school about Human Growth and Development. My internship was great and all the Irish people are amazing! Sean, Danny and Claire helped us when we needed them, they were fantastic. Thanks for everything, this is an experience I will always remember.


My experience with the Erasmus+ Blended Programme is very positive. It gave me an opportunity to learn about Ireland, learn the English language but also I learned to be more independent. Supervisors from the Blended Programme, teachers from school and my colleagues from Hillview Nursing home helped me with everything. Blended Programme thanks for this amazing experience I will never forget it.
