There are many different ways to learn. Before I went to UCC I imagined every college experience would be vaguely the same. After arriving at the University College Cork, I realized that schooling is different and it can be difficult to adjust. Don't be afraid to ask your classmates questions and try to be flexible.

I would encourage future students to become involved in the different activities on campus as well as throughout the city. There are plenty of events that provide students the opportunity to expand their knowledge, learn about the culture, and develop some life long friendships. Don't be afraid to try something new.

I absolutely loved being in a place that was clearly not home but at the same time was recognizable. I'd always wanted to go to Ireland, and this program was the perfect reason to have an extended stay. I loved being able to tell people I was a student at UCC and more than just a tourist. And even though everyone speaks English for the most part, the accents and slang make for interesting conversation nonetheless.
