The city of Dublin was fantastic, I loved the people, the sights, and the culture. I got to travel around Europe and learned so much! Courses wer enot too hard and teachers and students were always friendly. However, there were times when I felt bored
or lonely, I wish there were more students on my program! I also wish the school was located nearer to the city. Overall I'm so glad I went, but I also think there may have been some programs that I would have enjoyed even more.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
