I thought meeting other international students while abroad was rewarding. Not only are you going through the study abroad experience, but you can learn what it's like for student's with other worldly perspectives. I realized that in the US we form sort of a bubble, and UCC opened my eyes to so many other things out there.

UCC and KU have many similarities. The college is adaptable, though the classes (or "modules") are structured differently and the grading (or "marking") takes much longer.

The Early Start Archaeology Program was by far the most unique part of my experience at UCC. I used this class to fulfill the archaeology course requirement of my Anthropology. This was an exceptional way to experience archaeology. The program took place over 4 weeks before the start of fall term. In addition to class meetings we took 4 field trips around Ireland. In each of these trips, we visited sites we discussed in class. Some of the places included Galway and the Aran Islands, Dublin and Meath, as well as many towns around the County of Cork. We saw old monastic sites, ringforts (a settlement type that was common in Ireland historically), and Megalithic tombs, and abandoned castles. I know I would never have seen most of the places we visited without this course. It was an incredible introduction to Ireland and Irish history.
