Erasmus+ is an EU funded education programme aimed to further European integration. We have been involved in Erasmus+ for a number of years and have ambitious plans to expand the program to more students and staff. Our ultimate aim is for Midleton CBS to have permanent links to the network of European schools.


Over the years we have forged links with many schools and organisations around Europe. Our students have been involved in exchanges in Austria and France where they stayed with host families and experienced the culture, language and school life in Europe.


We work on various projects together with our partners and have the opportunity to send students abroad for short or long periods of time. This academic year one TY student is spending the entire academic year in a school in Germany. 


This year’s project is called Positive Vibes. Two of our staff members travelled to the Czech Republic during the summer to visit our partner school and now our students will have the opportunity to travel to France and the Czech Republic.


There is also a professional development aspect to the program. Our teaching staff have the possibility to attend education and training courses around Europe.

Feedback from our students who travelled

A fun and enlightening experience

It was a great trip, I got to meet new people and experience a new culture. Everyone was very friendly and I learned a lot. A brilliant opportunity to be taken if offered.

Well worth the trip, and helped improve my learning of German significantly. Learned new phrases and culturally became more enlightened.

Great unique experience, got to enjoy the culture and visit/see new things. Would do again and highly recommend. This experience also gave me a higher motivation to continue learning German.

Very positive experience overall, it was extremely fun and an excellent learning opportunity. Minor problems with organisation and travel, though these were mostly just regular delays and errors rather than mistakes on either school’s part.

One of our students recently made a video diary of his trip to Austira and Germany.
