Overall Experience
Best takeaway was learning how to make friends with people both at Trinity and also when travelling and staying in hostels. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Studying abroad at Trinity was the best four months of my life. Ireland offers the perfect blend of a big city in Dublin with easy access to the Irish countryside and coast. I learned so much about Irish culture and about myself. I had never travelled outside of the United States prior to arriving in Dublin, so my semester abroa... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Studying at Trinity was not the most fun experience of my life, but I've come back a much older and wiser person, I think. I'm happy to be home, but I appreciate all that I learned abroad. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Traveling and living on my own were really educational experiences. Even though I didn't enjoy TCD as much, Dublin made it worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
May 21, 2016 A Year At Tcd
While my experience was not very academically challenging, I developed agency and independence over the course of my year abroad. Trinity housed me in an on-campus apartment with six Irish students, who helped me to integrate into the campus social life. By the end of the year, I felt not only more comfortable with my peers than... - Wellesley College View Entire Review

Yes it was worthwhile. I learned how to live on my own in a foreign country, as well as valuable traveling skills. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about being independent and I think I grew personally. Dublin is an incredible city and I am grateful that I went. It was an incredible opportunity to see a whole new part of the world. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned how to rely on myself in a new situation, as well as how to reach out and integrate myself into a new college community. - Wellesley College View Entire Review

Travel was the best part. I've heard that said a lot by others. Note that most people have a hard time the first two months. I didn't have a great time in Dublin and that's partially my fault...I didn't try as hard as I should've to make friends. But the education was bad, local students either don't care much or dislike you pre... - Barnard College View Entire Review

I learned how to live on my own in a city, and work with a budget. I became more self-sufficient, and learned to balance my work and commute. It was absolutely worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Learned a tremendous amount about my personal interests, how to live in a city, and walk long, long distances to save money. It was worthwhile, but not ideal. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
That while other cultures may appear to be similar to ours, the people's mentality and hospitality can differ tremendously. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was absolutely worth while, I made so many friends there and had so many amazing experiences and opportunities. - SUNY - Binghamton View Entire Review
I think it was worthwhile. I learned a lot about living on my own, gained a more global perspective, understood more about other cultures and immigration - Middlebury College View Entire Review
June 30, 2016 Amazing
I learned about people's perspectives from far away. It was worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned an immense amount about the culture, and I found I really knew the city like the back of my hand upon leaving. I loved my classes and found it enlightening to see how European schools treat academics so differently. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I enjoyed Ireland and the other countries I traveled to. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
My personal experience going abroad was very worthwhile. However, it was different than the common experience. I spent a lot of time ALONE which was my initial intention. I really wanted to learn a lot about myself. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself as I lived (alone) in a new culture and made new friends. I totally recommend long-term immersion in another culture, its hard and terrifying but totally worth it. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Trinity College - Dublin: Dublin - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
Very worthwhile. I learned important life skills for post-graduation life and I immersed myself in a very different, special culture that made me feel uncomfortable and alien at first but then I grew to love and appreciate. I also got to travel to 4 other cities in 4 different countries which provided so much global experience a... - Wellesley College View Entire Review

October 14, 2014 Good Craic
I studied at Trinity for the Hilary Term (spring semester) of 2014. I loved this program because the direct enrollment allowed me meet a lot of young Irish people--outside of my American roommates, I spent most of my time with my Irish peers. The IES staff offered us many opportunities to get better acquainted with Irish cultu... - Loyola University Chicago View Entire Review
It was worthwhile, but I really would have liked a more immersive program - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Yes it was worthwhile. I gained a more international perspective of things - Middlebury College View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile. I've lived in other countries before but it was great to be able to live in such a friendly country and learn how to navigate by myself. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I had a wonderful experience in Ireland-- it had more to do with travel and experiences than it did with actual courses of study, but I'm okay with that. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
