Overall Experience
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
I gained a very strong sense of independence and confidence in my self - reliance. Being abroad constantly puts you in situations where you just have to figure something out on your own in a totally new country without knowing anyone frequently. It changed my life and calmed me down. I don't worry about things as much and hav... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
My study abroad experience was most definitely worthwhile! Studying in another country, particularly Ireland has helped to change my perspective in life and what is really important. At my home college, Wellesley, I feel like I am primarily a student but while studying in Dublin I was just a person who also studies at Trinity. ... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Our schools in America never really tought us about other countries maybe except wars that had included us. I learned alot is going on even when its not here, I was lucky enough to see the queen and the protests of the queens visit in Ireland which was an historical event a few can say they witnesed and our president was there f... - Front Range Community college View Entire Review
This has changed my perspective on interntaional behaviour, art, and culture across the board. I don't regret any of my choices. I feel as though I have lived a very charmed life here. Not without difficulty, not without fun. - Trinity College - Dublin View Entire Review
I have a better appreciation of valuing family, friends and health more than Americans seem to on a daily basis due to work constraints and stress. I really want to consider TCD as a grad school option, the cultural differences in Dublin in terms of life attitude make it a difficult option to ignore. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned more about myself on this adventure than anything. Completely alone in a new place, I learned more and more about my own ablities and the country from which my ancestors came. I also learned how to cook, which was fantastic. I also picked up a global view and was able to see American from the outside for the first t... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Very worth while. It gave me an idea of others culture instead of just my own. - University of South Alabama View Entire Review
I learned so much about myself through studying abroad. Living on my own in a foreign country was an adventure in itself, let alone traveling by myself and then immersing myself into a new culture. It's hard to put into words, but I grew so much as a person and have a whole new perspective on life and culture. - Ithaca 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
Yes. I got to live in a whole new country for four months. I met friends I know I will forever keep. I was taken out of my comfort zone and forced to spend such a long period of time with complete strangers in a country different from America. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Trinity College - Dublin: Dublin - Direct Enrollment/Exchange
My study abroad experience was one of the best and most influential times of my life. Before this, I had barely ever been further than 3 hours and a phone call away from my family, and I always thought they were more equipped to handle my life than I was. Being abroad allowed me the chance to take control of my life and helped m... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I know that it is cliched to say it, but I honestly felt that I gained more confidence by going abroad. I was definitely outside of my comfort zone and grew from it - I ended up traveling to Peru later (and I don't speak any Spanish). Staying in Dublin has definitely made me want to travel more. - Ithaca College View Entire Review
Past Review Ireland
I had a great time. It made me look at America more and think about how we are different and look at positives and negatives. It has definitely made me want to travel more. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
It was a very fun experience, made even more fun by undemanding academics. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
My time abroad did not radically change my perspective, it made me one-hundred times more comfortable with myself, my interests, and my abilities. I met the love of life and two friends who are without-a-doubt, lifelong. Dublin is a charming city with many treasures waiting to be found.

Past Review
I found that you need to strike a balance of who you make friends with while abroad. It is very easy to only meet other Americans (especially in Ireland because there were so many). However, I felt that being able to meet other international students was very worthwhile because you can talk about how different their culture sh... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
