Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

IPSL has designed & delivered international programs focusing on experiential learning, ethical service & engaged research for 37 years. Now the independent IPSL Institute for Global Learning is authorized to offer academic credit, issue official transcripts and confer diplomas through the Master's level.

IPSL is a B-Corp (Social Benefit Organization) with over 83% of profits directly returned to the people, communities & NGOs they partner with abroad.

Ireland offers opportunities to explore what it means to assume the responsibilities of global citizenship from the lived experience of a specific place. Living in Dublin, studying at IPSL's partner, The Institute of Art, Design and Technology, working for community-based groups and agencies in the city, and with easy access to the rest of the country and to Northern Ireland, you have the opportunity to immerse yourself in a rich and varied cultural heritage and get to understand first hand the current issues of both native Irish as well as immigrants to Ireland's shores.

Learn the practical skills to be an active agent of change and social justice. Study the many international efforts in history, learn from these efforts and use them to develop a personal ethic of service, advocacy and civic engagement. COSA (Community Organizing & Social Activism) will teach you the skills of community organizing and will empower you to create sustainable change in your own communities.


Homestays with a local Irish family. Partial board is included. An integral part of the program, the homestay offers you the opportunity to make life-long friends, gain higher proficiency in the language, and experience the culture from "the inside." All IPSL host families are carefully selected and experienced with hosting students.
