Arcadia: Limerick - University of Limerick

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
Absolutely. Stepping out of your confort zone gives you a lot of confidence. Meeting new people and adapting to a new culture is important and gives a much better perspective on life.

Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

It was tougher because you are thrown into the mix of students rather than being only americans in a non-english speaking country but it was more interesting that way.

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

They had good dinners/trips and other various accomodations lined up for the students.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

6-person flat - each had their own bedroom and bathroom. One big kitchen and living area. <br /><br /> Very nice accomodation.

Food was expensive and we had to provide it all for ourselves.

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

The Irish love to have a good time.
