Internationalisation of Education and Training at Carlow Institute enables the delivery of high quality, relevant and meaningful learning experiences. Erasmus+ supports Carlow Institute in education and training through mobility and international links.
Through Erasmus+, we offer students the opportunity to enhance their experiences in an international context through funded residential trips to partner organisations across the world. Research shows that participating in overseas educational experiences enhances students’ progression opportunities, as well as developing a wide range of personal kills, including confidence and intercultural awareness.
At Carlow Institute we have developed links with colleges across Europe and have scheduled student visits to France and Spain. These residential visits offer you amazing opportunities to develop your cultural and educational awareness and to enhance your understanding of the international dimension of your occupational area. International visits are brilliant learning experiences and are significant enhancements to your CV too!
