Erasmus Programme for Rathmines College Students

The Erasmus Programme offers Rathmines College students the opportunity to do work experience in another country. Rathmines College offers 20 students the opportunity to take a two-week work placement organised for each student in another European city.

The college Erasmus programme sees two groups of 10 students experience European working life, culture and sightseeing. Erasmus takes place during the February mid-term break with flights, accommodation, travel insurance, a pre-organised work placement and pocket money included with this two-week trip. Students who have experienced the Erasmus Programme have gained valuable experience in living and working aboard with the opportunity of improving their European language skills.

In 2024, our students travelled to Nantes (France) and Malaga (Spain).

How to Apply

Testimonials from Our Erasmus Students

I had a very positive experience doing this course. The teachers are very supportive and welcoming. I feel it has given me a good basis to work off in university. The mixture between assignments and exams make achieving a good result very accessible and I really enjoyed the topics covered in the different modules. I am now studying Religion and English in DCU"
Rachel Byrne (Liberal Arts student, 2022-23)
During my QQI L5 studying Business and Finance, I enjoyed all my modules for example Tax, Accounting, Communications, as well an extra module I took up which was French. This led me to going on an Erasmus trip to Nantes in the North of France. It was honestly an amazing and fun trip. I fully recommend studying here at Rathmines College of Further Education.
