Student Life

Student Life

At ISI we place a huge emphasis on involving our students in the community of the school so they feel part of student life from the start. We also understand that every student wants to maximise their time in Ireland, to meet new people, and to speak English all the time.

We’ve developed a range of activities and student clubs to ensure our students get the most out of their experience and enjoy every minute. The weekly ISI Social Programme includes at least one activity each afternoon and some evening and Saturday events. These activities are very important to help you integrate and make friends. If you are studying in an afternoon programme you will have the option to attend some school clubs and evening activities. Check out our facebook page for photos of recent events Below are some samples - please note these are subject to change and will vary from week to week.
