Overall Experience
Going to Dublin was, without doubt, the best decision of my life. I learned so much about myself and was able to find an incredibly loving community of friends abroad. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned how to travel independently and work in a system that I was not used to. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was definitely a worthwhile experience. I gained the experience of living in another country, which is something I have always planned to do, and I will take that experience with me to the next place I end up. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
100% worthwhile! I feel that I grew as a person, became more independent, and worldly. I expanded my horizons, tried new, fun, cultural things, and made friendships that I hope will last a lifetime. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was worth-while. I gained valuable skills largely regarding how to be an independent and self sufficient adult, while still, obviously, having a blast. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I gained a new level of self confidence and indolence from traversing new and foreign cities on my own, I gained a greater appreciation for and understanding of the EU-- particularly Ireland and her history. - Washington & Lee University View Entire Review
Past Review Tcd Review
Going abroad is worthwhile but I did not enjoy the school that I chose, which is unfortunate. However, the IFSA-Butler team were an amazing bunch and they made my study abroad experience so great. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Past Review Fantastic
totally worthwhile. Learned a lot about myself as a person and my heritage. - Franklin & Marshall College View Entire Review
Past Review Awesome
Yes and alot - Providence College View Entire Review
I wouldn't give up this experience for the world. I am definitely a changed person since studying abroad, and I made tons of local, lifelong friends. A few of them even came to visit me at home this summer! I am so glad I decided to study abroad in Ireland, and that I really put myself out there in the local social environment. ... - Tufts University View Entire Review
I learned how to be self-sufficient, how to adapt to new situations, and make new relationships with all different types of people. I also learned how many amazing cultures and opportunities there are in the world, and we should take advantage of all that we can. It was absolutely worthwhile, and I would go back in a heartbeat... - Providence College View Entire Review
absolutely! i learned a lot about how to study and i'm more independent, and it prepared me for the busy senior year i have ahead of me - Providence College View Entire Review
It was honestly the best experience of my life! I came back so much more confident and knowledgeable about myself. I cannot say enough good things about the overall experience. I would highly recommend going abroad to any college student. I gave 9 instead of 10 stars due to lack of organization on IFSA's part. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned so much about myself and how to take care of myself and navigate a city on my own. I learned how to utilize resources at a new giant university to help me succeed in my classes. I learned so much about Irish history and culture! I gained a broader perspective on the world. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Definitely worthwhile and I recommend everyone study abroad if possible! - Davidson College View Entire Review
Had tons of fun and learned a lot! - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I was able to gain not only an immense knowledge of Ireland itself, but also how to adapt to a new country, the ways to navigate a foreign academic system, and the flexibility needed to understand what it is like to be an international student. - Colgate University View Entire Review
Past Review Dubliners Dream
I learned how to be independent! I learned how to travel alone, explore cities alone, and be happy being alone. I spent plenty of time with friends and socializing, but being away from my good friends back home meant I had to both make new friends and be contented being by myself. This, I believe, is a valuable life lesson. - Cornell University View Entire Review
I learned how to live on my own and explore a different culture safely. I also learned how to challenge myself with different academic and social surroundings - Wake Forest University View Entire Review
I gained more independence and met some great people. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I gained friends, an new way to learn and research and study, a new perspective on my heritage, etc. It was the most worthwhile thing I've done in my life thus far. - Fordham University View Entire Review
What I've gained cannot possible be summed up in a few sentences. It was the most worthwhile thing I've done in my entire life. - Providence College View Entire Review
I became more independent and mature. I loved being abroad in Europe and I would like to maybe volunteer or study abroad again during law school. - Providence College View Entire Review
