Cost of Living
Overall Experience
100000% worth it. I gain a better perspective on the world and many cultures, while creating life long friendships! - University of St. Thomas - Minnesota View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IFSA-Butler: Cork - University College Cork
Typical to the stereotype, I learned how to handle my drink. It was a good environment for me, as an international student, but the drinking culture for late teens and young adults is full of peer pressure. Home-grown in Texas, in a land-locked area, it was beautiful to see the sea as often as I did. It was also stunning to se... - Austin College View Entire Review
I became very independent. There were a lot of times that I had to depend completely on myself when something bad happened and I learned a lot more about myself as a result. It was definitely a worthwhile experience. - Fordham University View Entire Review
Of course it was! Everyday is a learning experience! - Berea College View Entire Review
I would not trade my experiences. I was able to make great friends and I feel like I became much more independent while overseas.

I learned that being open to every new experience is key. I learned that talking to the locals is the absolutely best way to learn new things. Certainly worth while. - New Mexico State University View Entire Review
After studying in Ireland, I will be writing my Honors Thesis on the Northern Ireland Conflict. I learned how to live, travel, and adapt in a totally new environment. I loved everyone I met and every place I visited. - Tulane University View Entire Review
Completely and so immensely so, worhtwhile! - Providence College View Entire Review
