As cheesy as it is, I learned so much about myself and gained confidence while doing so. - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
I learned a LOT. I learned that I can adapt to another country and culture and grow by getting very far out of my comfort zone.

A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: Dublin - Irish Studies
I became a much more independent and self-sufficient person. It was an experience that I needed to have and that changed me as a person in a great way. I did a lot of growing up and saw things that even my parents have not seen. I am so fortunate for the opportunity. - Pennsylvania State University - University Park / Penn State View Entire Review
My experience was definitely worthwhile. I gained so much from being immersed in another culture. It taught me how to adapt to different circumstances. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I learned how to navigate and travel through a populated city on my own, buy my own food and prepare meals, as well as plan with others on where we would travel within the country as well as more. 100% totally worth it! - Texas Christian University View Entire Review
Past Review Dublin Adventure
It was absolutely worth while. I learned about a new city and got a sense of traveling alone and being independent. I learned that its easier than I thought to connect with different people and that traveling with people who share the same interests can make the experience so much better. - University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill View Entire Review

Past Review Summer In Dublin
Living abroad was the best experience of my life. I learned so much, not just about the local culture and history, but how to be more independent and confident in navigating the world. It was also a whole lot of fun, and the memories I have from my trip are ones that I will cherish forever. - University of Virginia View Entire Review
