About InterStudies

 Welcome to the InterStudies world of high quality education

At InterStudies we have been offering high-quality educational programmes since 2002. Our teams of local support staff in the UK and Ireland work closely with our international management team to provide young people from all over the world the opportunity to experience cultural exchange in a safe and caring environment.
The youth of today are our common future. We strive to help the young people who take part in our programmes to make the most of the unique educational opportunity that is cultural exchange, and to give our students the best possible foundation for their future position in life. Cultural understanding is becoming increasingly valuable in todays’ interconnected world, and there is no better way to learn a culture and language than by “living it”.
Thank you for taking an interest in our work. We look forward to welcoming you into the InterStudies world of high quality educational programmes. Please read on to learn more about our mission and vision, and to meet our team. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions

An opportunity to create change

Working as an InterStudies LSC is a great opportunity – both for the young people from around the world who you will meet and help, and for yourself.

Fulfill a dream

As a local support coordinator, you will help young people from around the world to fulfil their dream of experiencing daily life in Ireland. You will provide local families with the opportunity to share their Irish culture, and help schools to add a global dimension to local education.  learn more

Care and support

Our young students are far away from home, probably for the first time, and they rely on your care and support. Your care and support will give your students the opportunity to create memories for life, and you will play a key role in one of the most memorable years of their lives.  learn more

Intercultural understanding

As an LSC you’ll meet students from all over the world, building bridges between people, cultures, and countries. You’ll have the opportunity to improve intercultural understanding, one student at a time!  learn more
