You’ll find delicious Lebanese cuisine, trendy film cafés, and colorful international parades alongside statues of Irish literary giants. A US-style education a world away – Your host institution, Dublin City University, is modeled on the US university education experience, so you’ll have less educational culture shock.

International students – Many of your 10,000 fellow students come from around the world. You can learn from them in and out of the classroom and have friends to visit across the globe after your semester abroad. Tons to do on campus – With over 100 student activities on campus and great resources like a student union, cafés, a pool, and even a rock-climbing wall, you’ll never get bored! Travel opportunities throughout the region - With cheap airfare and train routes galore, you can travel within Ireland, around the UK, and to various cities, beaches, and mountains in Europe when you study abroad in Ireland!

Semester in Dublin is housed at Dublin City University (DCU). Unlike the academic systems of most Irish universities, when it comes to teaching and learning, DCU’s system is loosely based on the American system. Rather than having one or two projects or presentations deciding your entire grade, you will have “continual assessment". That being said, you will have more responsibility for learning material outside of class than you may be used to. The main subject areas available at DCU: biology, biotechnology, business, chemistry, communication, computer science, economics, engineering, environmental sciences, health, intercultural communication, international relations, journalism, law, nursing, physics, political studies, and sport science.

Shortly after you arrive you will be able to feel the passion that Dubliners have for their sports teams (including football (soccer), rugby, and Gaelic Football).
