Overall Experience
A student studying abroad with National University of Ireland / NIU: Galway - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
I learned the processes and the intermediate level skills of archaeological excavation. I learned the varied methods used by archaeologists to excavate different types of site and provide experience in a number of necessary skills, including intermediate levels of recovery and recording, feature excavation, and basic excavation ... - Eastern Illinois University View Entire Review
I learned more about myself this semester than in the summation of my entire college experience. Studying abroad challenges you to be independent, confident, and hard-working, while at the same time providing you with opportunities to explore the world. I would go back to Galway anyday! The experience was absolutely worth all of... - Berea College View Entire Review

Seeing and immersing in a different culture and way/ pace of life. - University of Wisconsin - LaCrosse View Entire Review
Independence, Developed world view - Fordham University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about budgeting, being independent, and I learned a new set of social skills being placed in an entirely foreign situation and trying to make friends. It was like college starting all over again. - Villanova University View Entire Review
A sense of enormous self-confidence in my ability to navigate foreign places alone, and yes, it was the most important thing I've ever done. - Western Washington University View Entire Review
I learned so much about Irish history that I had never known before. - The College of William and Mary View Entire Review
I absolutely loved study abroad and I would do it again in a heartbeat. I did some amazing things, met some great people, and had some of the best experiences of my life. Studying abroad allowed me to get a taste of another culture and experience what it is like to live in another country. I learned so much and I have memories t... - University of Hartford View Entire Review
I really do not feel this was a worthwhile experience for me. I was lucky in that I had family and friends in the area who were able to make my abroad experience immensely rewarding, but the study abroad aspect seemed to me inadequate. In the future, when looking for study abroad, I will be sure to select a program that has more... - Harvard University View Entire Review
I learned more about myself and how the world is viewed differently from other countries perspectives. I gained more knowledge about how the European countries work. This was a great experience and I met wonderful people. - Berea College View Entire Review
This experience taught me a lot about myself as a person and how to be more independent and confident on my own. Traveling around Europe enabled me to see and meet so many people who were different from my small town in Kentucky. I have made friends who will last a lifetime and I truly believe I am a better person after studying... - Berea College View Entire Review

I absolutely loved study abroad. It gave me some independence and agency. It was definitely worthwhile. - Berea College View Entire Review
September 29, 2016 Life Changing Experience
Of course my time abroad was worthwhile. I connected with another culture and made what I know will be lifelong friends. I am also going to try to go to graduate school abroad because of this experience. - Berea College View Entire Review
My study abroad experience allowed me to learn how to be on my own in a new environment. I was able to take responsibility in myself that I was never really able to before. Not only that, but I was able to experience a new culture while I was at it and see a different way of living. It was amazing. - Berea College View Entire Review
I discovered what it was like to have relationship with a city. Galway is big enough to be interesting and alive and small enough to be friendly and intimate. I learned so much about myself, my ability to take care of myself with very little support. I learned about a culture and place that I thought I already knew something abo... - Berea College View Entire Review
Sense of independence and a better understanding of other cultures and myself. Living in Galway was one of the best experiences of my life. - Fairfield University View Entire Review
It was an incredible opportunity to meet new friends and travel throughout Europe. Unlike most bigger cities, Galway allows you to be become TOTALLY immersed in the culture and the city within just the first few weeks, making the rest of the experience that much more rewarding. - Villanova University View Entire Review
It was worthwhile. I learned a lot and enjoy my time. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
It was very worthwhile. Being in a different culture, even though it is still a Western culture, makes you reevaluate your own culture in a healthy way. - The College of William and Mary View Entire Review
Of course it was worthwhile. It may not have been exactly what I wanted all the time and perhaps I would have chosen a different program if I could have, but I have now had this experience and have grown and learned more about myself because of it. So, I can't say that it wasn't worthwhile, because it is now a part of my life. - Barnard College View Entire Review
Past Review Galway Rules!
Yes, I learned a ton about my host country's culture, it was the experience of a lifetime. - Villanova University View Entire Review
