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.

As a person who has been involved with music, politics, and communication studies at KU, my program provided a wide range of classes that catered to all of my interests. I really enjoyed my Global Politics class as well as my Modern Music in Ireland class. Both of these classes really opened my eyes to the different culture and values that Ireland holds. In my Global Politics class I experienced what it was like to study politics from a different countries point of view. It was also very interesting to see the way the Irish and other countries view the United States. My Modern Music class introduced me to the music world outside of traditional Irish music.

My favorite part of this program were the people and laid back culture!
