STUDY ABROAD IN IRELAND, ENGLAND & ITALY
About This Program
A tour through some of classical literature’s most inspirational cities and towns, this program will be a treat for the academics at heart.
Settle in at the historic Trinity College in Dublin, built in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth I. Experience authentic campus life while taking up accommodations in student residence and studying in the secret gardens of Merrion Square where famous alumni, Oscar Wilde, once penned some of the world’s greatest written works. Marvel at the grandeur of the Old Library of Trinity College and walk through the famous Long Room where 200,000 of the world’s oldest books are housed.
Use your Dublin Pass to join a hop-on, hop-off bus tour and choose which of the top attractions to visit, including the Guinness Storehouse, the trendy Temple Bar neighbourhood, the Viking museum, and the shops of Grafton Street, just steps from your residence.
Travel across Ireland to the laid-back and friendly west-coast town of Galway. Visit the awe-inspiring Cliffs of Moher, enjoying coastal walks along the rugged cliffs, and spend time beachcombing along the Atlantic coast.
In London, immerse yourself in college life once again while staying at Imperial College. Take in St. Paul’s Cathedral, and study Shakespeare on campus while visiting the stage his plays were created for at the Globe theatre. Explore the British Museum before learning the history of the Tower of London and viewing the Crown Jewels inside.
Journey outside London to Oxford, the city of dreaming spires, and take up residence at St. Anne’s College at the prestige Oxford University. Built in the 11 century it is the oldest university in the English speaking world with 38 colleges to discover. Explore the historic campus buildings scattered around the city and get up close with some of the world’s most famous buildings and architecture that inspired prominent poetry and literature from the Victorian era. Gather for class along the banks of the picturesque River Cherwell before punting down the river for the most spectacular views of the University’s green belt. Visit the famous Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology before heading to Italy.
Step into another time in Rome, the Eternal City, and see all of the important sites, from the Colosseum and the Roman Forum to Trevi Fountain, the Vatican and its Sistine Chapel, and the Spanish Steps. Opt to visit Ostia Beach and the Ostia Antica ruins, and feast on Italian cuisine before saying ciao to your classical tour.
