My favorite part of studying abroad in Cork was my Early Start in Irish Musics class and my Irish Step Dancing class. I took both of them on a complete whim and am so glad that I got to learn these aspects of the Irish culture. Music and dance are both widely associated with Irish identity and every time I went to these two classes I had a smile on my face!

The culture adjustment is a real thing, and it is okay to not be having the time of your life 24/7. The social media pictures make it seem that way, but it is difficult sometimes. Everyone goes through it, you are not weird or alone if you experience it.

I loved being able to travel all around Ireland. The people are so friendly and welcoming.
I really liked how flexible it was to take courses at UCC. The advisors in the International Office were very helpful, and went out of there way to make sure the modules would be a good fit for what you were looking for, your current academic level, and your major/career goals.
