Overall Experience
I learned that sometimes no plan is the best plan, that was a big thing for me. Sometimes the most amazing experiences come when you least expect them. Definitely worthwhile! - College of Charleston View Entire Review

Learning how to budget and travel while making new friends. Defiantly worthwhile!!!! - University of Hartford View Entire Review
It was 100% worth it. I learned a lot about how others view america which was both worrying but also refreshing. I learned a lot about myself and my ability to live independently. I was able to see so many places in Europe and expand my knowledge of the world. - University of Hartford View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with AIFS: Limerick - University of Limerick
My experience abroad gave me so much more self-confidence and a greater perspective of the world around me. I became comfortable navigating foreign cities, striking up conversation with strangers, and exploring the world around me. I also discovered that there is so much more outside of the bubble I've lived in my whole life, an... - University of Hartford View Entire Review
I gained a lot of confidence about traveling in general, but especially regarding traveling in Europe. The experience was worthwhile, but I would choose a different program because AIFS was not worth the money. - Providence College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about my own culture, which I did not expect. It was shocking to me how much people look to basic cultural stereotypes to identify people. I found people often asking me and my friends about our ethnicity and religion almost immediately after asking our names. In Canada, this would be inconceivably rude. - University of Calgary View Entire Review
I learned about travel. Such as who to travel with, and how my personality fits with others. - Berea College View Entire Review
Past Review Indescribable
I've learned how to take care of myself and gained a lot of experiences that will hopefully help me get a good job when I graduate. It was definitely worthwhile. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
I made a lot of different people, not only from Ireland but also friends from different places around the US. - Carroll College View Entire Review
It was completelyyyy worth it! I cannot stress enough the many benefits that studying abroad has had in my life already now that I am home. I am now more globally minded and feel more self aware and independent. - The Sage Colleges View Entire Review

I learned about adapting to cultural differences. Yes, it was worthwhile. - Berea College View Entire Review
Being able to backpack around Europe and travel around most of Ireland was a very worthwhile experience. Going abroad helped me improve many skills necessary for a successful future such as budgeting and time management. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
The history, culture, music, and proud nationality of where my family name came form. It was priceless for me. - West Texas A&M University View Entire Review

Life lessons, travel lessons, about different cultures. Independence and confidence. More about myself than I would have discovered at home. - Centenary College of New Jersey View Entire Review

I learned how to better organize my time and money in order to get the most out of my experience. I learned a lot about myself and how to be self-sufficient. - Xavier University View Entire Review
Gained a whole new perspective on life outside the states. The most worthwhile four months of my life, would encourage anyone to study abroad. - Oklahoma State University - Stillwater View Entire Review

I honestly cannot even express how valuable, life-changing, growing, adventurous, and exciting my experience at the University of Limerick was! It has given me a love for traveling, a deeper appreciation for people and cultures around the world, an adventuring spirit, and a confidence in myself I had never had before.

Studying abroad gave me a different outlook on life. It just opens your eyes to so much more than the little stuff we are used to. I met amazing people, whom i will always keep in touch with hopefully for years to come. Its very worth it. - University of Arkansas - Fayetteville View Entire Review
Past Review Unforgettable
