Hundreds of students and staff from our Erasmus + partner educational institutions join us each year. Our International Offices provide advice and guidance to incoming students on everything from student registration to accommodation to finding a job in Ireland.
We also support our Irish students and staff to complete an exchange period at one of our partner universities or colleges.
Many of our courses offer students the opportunity to study abroad or complete an international work placement. These will enhance your employability prospects in today’s globalised economy.
Depending on your course, you can apply to study abroad for a semester or a year. We have opportunities with numerous EU universities. These are supported by the Erasmus+ Mobility Programme. You can find out more about the Erasmus+ Mobility Programme here.
We also have some opportunities with partner colleges and universities outside the EU, such as the USA, Canada, Brazil and many more.
Most of our students study abroad through English. However, some students undertaking a foreign language module may have the option to study through this language.
Work Placement Abroad
Several courses in ATU include an international work placement. In some instances, grant aid is available to support students on these placements.
