Student Travel Information Ireland

Understanding Your Options

Arcadia University attempts to make your travel overseas as easy and affordable as possible. All students are responsible for arranging and purchasing their own flight.

Additionally, all students are required to be in attendance for the Arcadia orientation. The first day of Arcadia orientation coincides with the posted program arrival date.

In order to connect you with Arcadia in-country staff on the program arrival date, you will need to be aware of the arrival instructions below. If you have any questions about booking your overseas travel, please contact Arcadia’s Student Safety Officer, Rich Conroy, at conroyr@arcadia.edu

Individual Travel: Arcadia in-country staff will be on hand at designated times on the program arrival date to assist students arriving independently.

Meeting Up with Staff: Please refer to the "What to Expect When I Arrive" section for the time and location of the Arcadia staff airport pick-up.

Joining Up with the Group: Students arriving by the specified landing time on their scheduled arrival day will be met at the airport by Arcadia staff for pick-up.

Arriving Prior to Scheduled Arrival Date/ Arriving Late: Students arriving on an earlier date or later than the designated staff pick-up times on the scheduled arrival day will be responsible for their own transportation to the orientation venue or program.
