“In addition to the academic competences acquired during my Erasmus+ mobility, I enriched my intercultural awareness and immersed myself into the Irish culture through various extracurricular activities offered by GCI.  My personal highlights were the guided trips to Connemara National Park and the Aran Islands together with my lovely international teacher colleagues, the Galway Arts Festival as well as a guided walking tour through the historic city centre with an emphasis on Victorian architecture.” Ulrich Kaiser-Kaplaner, participant
