Overall Experience
I mostly gained confidence and independence while abroad. It was scary to be out of the country for the first time and to be so far from home, especially since I go to college in my hometown, but IFSA-Butler Ireland made it seamless and easy to acclimate to life abroad, and my experience with them was definitely worthwhile. - University of Tulsa View Entire Review
I learned a lot about advocating for myself, integrating, and realizing my own independence. It was worthwhile to me. - Susquehanna University View Entire Review
My semester abroad was the most worthwhile experience I've ever had. I would do it again in a heartbeat. I learned more about myself and who I am than I ever thought I could in a mere 4 months. Most of my learning was done outside the classroom. - Austin College View Entire Review
My experience abroad was definitely one of the most worthwhile experiences I've ever had. I gained a lot of courage to meet new people and try new and unique things. I also learned how to plan out my own trips pretty well, since I traveled as often as possible. - Trinity University View Entire Review
It has made me more aware of people in the world, and given me a different perspective on how I should live my life. I am definately more culturally aware and I am so happy I did this. - Providence College View Entire Review
I am definitely more independent. I will be coming back for sure. - Providence College View Entire Review
Past Review
Absolutely worth every penny. I gained experience dealing with cultures and places I wasn't used to, I gained a good deal of independence learning to take care of my own food supply (though I generally hated doing so!), I learned that time alone just spent wandering can be very rewarding, I learned that I can plan trips on my o... - Tufts University View Entire Review
I studied at the University of Limerick through IFSA-Butler and it was grand! UL is underrated in my opinion; great school, the academics are different but manageable, and the area is safe and close to the city (UL is technically in Castletroy). The IFSA-Butler staff in the U.S. and Ireland are extremely helpful and understandin... - Providence College View Entire Review
I learned so much about myself and how to get to know others. I could go on for pages about what I've learned, and it was one of the most worthwhile experiences of my life. I can't believe that it all actually happened - I met so many great people and had the best time in an extraordinarily gorgeous country - I feel like it was ... - Austin College View Entire Review
Honestly, I didn't gain a whole lot of book smarts during my semester abroad. What I lacked there, I definitely made up for in learning about myself. Studying abroad was an amazing growing experience for me. I had been struggling with some relationships at home before I left, but being away from them made it clear to me that the... - Butler University View Entire Review
Past Review Incredible
Friends and diversity, and yes it was worthwhile :) - Illinois State University View Entire Review
Past Review Ireland's Craic
YES! I got to see so many things and meet so many people that I never would have otherwise. I learned to slow down and enjoy things more. I learned a lot about myself and others and have a better appreciation for other cultures. I am considering going to a graduate program abroad after graduation, either in Ireland or the UK.... - Drake University View Entire Review
It was amazing. I actually chose to take some classes abroad versus at my home university to give myself a better global understanding and my adviser agreed. My friend and I loved that Ireland was a gateway to the rest of Europe for weekend trips and you never get bored of looking out your window and seeing remnants of castles... - University of Minnesota - Crookston View Entire Review
