We hold our students to the highest standards of maturity, responsibility, academic achievement and English language comprehension. EF's application process includes academic transcripts, teacher recommendations and in-person interviews.
Pre-departure meetings and exchange materials set students up for success. Once in Ireland, students are required to attend an orientation where they discover Irish culture, practice their English and learn skills that will serve them at school and with their host families.
Students must maintain at least a C average throughout the school year and EF also has a strict attendance policy. EF Staff in your local office maintain frequent communication with their partner schools and students.
