Studying in Ireland was unique for me for a lot of reasons. In the field of history, it was fantastic because I would learn about something, like a castle for instance, and then take a train or a bus and go see the castle. The history was all right there, which was great for someone like me. It was also interesting being one of ... - Knox College View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with Interstudy: Dublin - University College Dublin
It was definitely worth while for me. Although I did not do as well academically as I had hoped, I had an amazing time and met the most interesting people from all over the world. I've never been in an environment where being an American is a huge minority. It was very interesting to see what other people thought about America/A... - University of Rhode Island View Entire Review
My experience was amazing... something I'll be talking about for the rest of my life. I have a completely different view of life- It fits the cliche of "I found myself" I am even considering moving to Ireland in my future. - University of Rhode Island View Entire Review
Essentially, my Hamline preparation and my experience at UCD were both pretty poor and unchallenging, but the traveling abroad made it completely worth it. I have come out of it with a global perspective, a new bravery and courage, and a new sense of relaxation and extroversion. - Hamline University View Entire Review
Past Review
My study aboard experience was 110% worthwhile. I was able to learn about a culture very similar but very much different than my own. I was able to travel Europe and try things I never otherwise would have had the opportunity to do. I learned to appreciate other people views and ideas. If I could do it all over again I would... - Viterbo University View Entire Review
