- Loving Limerick05/11/17
I didn't know how much I needed to go to Limerick until I got there. Originally, I had thought that I wanted to study abroad in England, but I changed my mind because this program sounded better than the one my school offered in England. I am so happy
that I changed my program and studied with CISAbroad at the University of Limerick. UL is the perfect size, and there are so many student organizations that you can join, it's so easy to feel involved on campus! I got to live with students from all over Europe, take classes with Irish and International students, and explore Ireland. CISAbroad was attentive and helped me adjust to Ireland, and I always had someone to ask questions to when I needed help. I would absolutely recomend studying through CISAbroad at Limerick!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

While abroad I had many amazing opportunities to get to know the local students. There are even a few that I stay in contact with and will soon visit again. I also was able to explore the city I was in as well as the rest of the country. Four months seemed
way too short. I was able to get a good feel for the culture and even be immersed in it, but I wish I had just had more time to spend there, like most other study abroad students.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
