Overall Experience
April 21, 2024 Massive Dub
I learned that Wellesley is a microcosm of neuroticism and that in general, things are not that deep. I learned to not take everything so seriously all the time and to let myself live. It was very worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
January 01, 2024 It Was Amazing
Immersion into new culture, learning how to live independently, taking advantage of worthwhile opportunities - Wellesley College View Entire Review
August 15, 2023 Not For Me
I realised how much I valued and missed my friends and experiences at Wellesley. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned about various ways of living that were different from my own, met people from all over the world, got the chance to live in a city with new types of food, transportation, and religious practices, and had time to explore other cities and countries as well. The whole experience was definitely worthwhile! - Wellesley College View Entire Review
June 03, 2022 Ireland Is Lovely
Yes… I learned about Ireland and had lots of time to meditate on Ireland - Wellesley College View Entire Review
No, the pandemic made it less than international. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Interesting, but not fulfilling and would not repeat. Didn't learn anything that wasn't in class lectures - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned mostly about how to situate myself globally and how to adapt to a different culture, a different sense of humor, and a different mode of conversation, as well as how to manage my time and manage a commute. I absolutely fell in love with Ireland and with Dublin and it was definitely worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned more about Irish culture and history and found my experience to be very worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
i liked the cultural integration - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review A Good Time
I learned about how to fend for myself more and how to navigate a foreign country on my own. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I made some of the best friends I've ever had while living abroad. I fell in love with a wonderful girl and I had some of my best days in my life so far. I got to explore a truly incredible and jaw-droppingly beautiful country, and the experience of living in Dublin is one that is so amazing that I will never be able to wholly d... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile. I learned about a different culture and got to explore a new country, and learned a lot about Irish literature. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I gained valuable experience in living independently, adapting to a new city and academic structure, and traveling alone and with others. I think it was worthwhile overall. I also really enjoyed some of my classes and learned a lot from them. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
The experience was amazing and the location was beautiful. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I gained an even stronger sense of independence and learned how/when to advocate for myself in a larger university environment. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
September 04, 2022 Fun In Dublin!
I became more confident in myself, which to me made the experience very worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Made friends from all around the world who I remain in contact with, got a glimpse of European perspectives (i.e. on world issues) and systems (i.e. education and healthcare). I believe it was worthwhile because I learned a lot about myself and other people! - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Definitely worthwhile! For the few months I was there I made some good friends, and got to explore the city pretty thoroughly. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Learned to live in a city, but really difficult social culture. Wouldn't do it again. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I managed to break my foot almost immediately after arriving, and spent a week in the hospital and several more weeks bedridden. My experience was nothing at all like I expected. I was reliant on other for lots of basic needs (cooking, cleaning, getting to class) and had few opportunities to travel, and had a lot of my outings d... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I don't feel I learned much about myself. I think most people who say that are lying. After you adjust, you feel like you're just living normal life. It's hard to feel comfortable when the locals remind you how much of a Yankee you are. - Wellesley College View Entire Review

Past Review Rapturous
I gained an international perspective, and a greater humility. I also learned and connected with Irish history. It was definitely worth while! - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I got to travel around the beautiful country of Ireland, and learning to travel by myself was really rewarding. I have wanted to see Ireland my whole life so this was really a dream come true. My classes in Irish history were a great complement to my experience. I also met some amazing people from around the world with whom I ho... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Good Craic
I learned a lot more about being independent and speaking up for myself, which was definitely useful - Wellesley College View Entire Review
