Education & Exchange in Europe (EDEX) has been working with students in Ireland since 1997.

EDEX is one of Irelands leading and most personal companies specialising in academic year programmes in Ireland.

EDEX works in partnership with many schools throughout Ireland. All of the schools used offer a wide curriculum and are inspected by the Irish Department of Education. We offer an academic programme which involves reviewing student progress and sending an academic report to agents once a month. We also provide the relevant documentation at the end of the year which will allow students to progress in their home country the following year.

EDEX places students in schools throughout Ireland
Over our 30 years in Education we have built up relationships with staff in these schools and also with local host families, clubs and other local supports. We are continuously expanding our list of schools to give students the best chance of having an Irish experience without having too many speakers from their own country.
These days that is a challenge but we do like a challenge. If students are willing to try a new area we can usually overcome this challenge. No matter what school you go to you will have an Irish experience and start making memories. Students may opt to be placed in public or private day schools and live with a family or in public or private boarding schools

Host Families
All host families are chosen carefully by EDEX. The most important criteria for us are the mother. Over many years we have found that if she is okay then all else will fit into place. All of our host families must agree to Police vetting. In the case of day pupils the agency will be given family details for a student not later than 10 days before their arrival. Families are given a set of guidelines to ensure that they know our requirements. The family must be able to offer the student their own room. This must be warm and have a desk for studying.

The First Few Days arriving in Ireland
We meet students in the airport and organise a safe transfer to their school or host family. For students going to a day school their family will bring you to the school on the first day and introduce them.

If subject choices have already been made then we will have most, if not all of the books organised. For those students who have yet to choose then we will help them with their decision and then get their books.

EDEX Abroad

We focus on sending Irish students abroad for high school and immersion in Spain, Germany, Italy and Switzerland. We also offer immersions in Ireland for adults and students, these are bespoke programmes and basically you tell us what you require and we will organize it.


To apply you will need to complete an application form and return it to us by email. We will also need a medical form and the latest school report. Some schools will also ask for a reference from the headmaster of the school in the pupil's home country.
