- Amazing Experience03/29/19
I participated in the UNO Writing Abroad program in the summer of 2015. I loved every moment of my experience. I was challenged academically, culturally immersed, and felt like it was a fantastic introduction to life outside of the United States. We had
really fun excursions planned throughout the program. The other participants were supportive, friendly, inspiring, and up for anything. Cork residents were friendly, interested in us, and welcoming. We spent many nights exploring Cork, singing karaoke, eating fish & chips, and even going to concerts. It was one of the best decisions made in my life. I believe that my experience studying abroad set me on my life's trajectory. I now work in international education and travel for fun whenever I can! I learned so much about myself, my national identity, traveling, and how big the world is.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
- Writing in Ireland03/26/19
I went on this program in 2015 after researching several of UNO's summer study abroad programs and selected the Cork, Ireland program as it had the most course offerings that were applicable to my majors-- English and Film & Theatre. A month was the
right amount of time in Ireland. By the end of the trip I not only felt familiar with Cork itself but I was able to create bonds with my classmates that I may have not formed in a shorter time frame. As an older, nontraditional student, I appreciated the diversity in the student's and, in general, this program attracts more mature students, regardless of age. Academically, I felt like I was getting the same quality education as if I was studying during a regular semester. I also appreciated the mix of free time and scheduled activities, which allowed plenty of time to socialize with students and professors alike as well as experience the country on my own. I highly recommend this program, especially for students searching for an intimate writing workshop experience. I gained so much from writing in a different country surrounded by writers from different schools, ages, and backgrounds. That, to me, was invaluable.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
