Details of the trip
Ireland is a place rich in history, traditions, legends: it has a great cultural heritage handed down from generation to generation, of which the Irish are very proud. In recent years, it has established itself as a popular destination for students, who choose it for the quality of its educational system and its very hospitable and friendly environment.

School
The schools that host Exchange Students are public, but generally Catholic and can be mixed, female or male. The school is chosen based on your profile, interests and the availability of places. The school principal reserves the right to decide which year you will be placed in and to make any changes based on your progress during your studies. Almost all schools organize extracurricular activities (sports, social and cultural). Most schools in Ireland require you to wear a uniform, which you can purchase locally.

Family
The family, which is reimbursed for its hospitality, plays an important role in your experience because it allows you to experience first-hand the culture, customs and traditions of the Irish people. Most host families live in rural areas, small towns or villages. A student of another nationality may stay in the same house as you, but you can request at an additional cost to be the only foreign student in the family.

BEC British European Centre

 “Da cinquant’anni BEC lavora per e con la scuola al fine di organizzare programmi scolastici all’estero, vacanze studio e programmi di alternanza scuola lavoro per quei giovani animati dal desiderio di viaggiare, di incontrarsi con ragazzi di altri Paesi e di crescere in un mondo senza confini.” 
 
Da sempre il viaggio è il leitmotiv del lavoro che BEC svolge con esperienza e serietà; il viaggio come ricerca, conoscenza, approfondimento e integrazione, con l’obiettivo di offrire ai giovani gli strumenti per acquisire autonomia, non solo linguistica.

BEC si rivolge agli studenti e alle famiglie che credono nei programmi all'estero, confidando nella loro utilità, non solo quale approfondimento delle conoscenze linguistiche, ma anche e soprattutto, quale ampliamento degli orizzonti per porre le basi per un futuro ricco e multiculturale.

BEC si rivolge alle famiglie che desiderano avvicinarsi all’Exchange Program, per valutare la possibilità di permettere ai propri figli di trascorrere un periodo di 2, 3, 5 oppure 9 mesi lontano da casa, frequentando una High School (scuola superiore) e vivendo presso una Host Family (famiglia ospitante), con la consapevolezza che entrambe le sfere avranno un ruolo molto importante: il confronto con un altro ordinamento scolastico e il conseguente adattamento da una parte; il punto di riferimento per una nuova vita all’estero ed il luogo ideale per l’inserimento in una nuova comunità dall’altra.

Oltre  all’Exchange Program, BEC promuove programmi di accoglienza in Italia, propone soggiorni studio per adulti (16+) combinati all'ottenimento di certificazioni linguistiche o periodi di volontariato e stage, organizza vacanze studio estive per adolescenti. 
 
 BEC è membro di CSIET (Council on Standard for International Educational Travel) e IALCA (Associazione Italiana degli Agenti e dei Consulenti Linguistici).


Lo staff BEC è altamente qualificato e a disposizione per qualsiasi esigenza, dal momento della prenotazione sino al rientro al termine del soggiorno mettendo a disposizione assistenza in Italia e in loco 24 ore su 24 durante il soggiorno. 
 
Passione, professionalità e flessibilità caratterizzano lo staff BEC, che sarà al vostro fianco passo dopo passo per realizzare il vostro progetto all’estero!
