International Travel at Dublin

When we create an international travel experience, our goal is to provide Dublin students with immersive and authentic language and cultural learning experiences in a setting that will inspire, challenge, and enrich them as citizens of the world. We aspire to avoid the tourist model. Instead, we want our students to connect with culturally different communities that will challenge their thinking and allow them to understand the culture that they live in with new eyes. We want students to not only be enriched by the experience but to increase their curiosity on their return. Fundamentally, we want travel to be a window on the realities and possibilities of the world. 

What does that mean? It means our Nordic and Alpine ski teams training and living in Patagonia with the Club Andino Bariloche in Bariloche, Argentina or our dancers collaborating with the Teatro Del Lago in Frutillar, Chile.  It means science students monitoring environmental change in Chaukori India with students from the Himalaya Inter College.  It means science research trips in places where only Spanish is spoken. It means using sports, the arts and science to break down cultural barriers.
