My favorite part of the program was definitely the variety of places that we were able to experience. We went to Limerick, Galway, and Dublin as group, and I had time to go up to Belfast on myself. It is what you make it, and I felt that I made it extremely worth it.
The classes offered in this program provided an immersion into not only the way of thinking and life of the Irish people, but also provided an insight into the structure of academics and learning styles of another country. The opportunity to pair the classes taken all while being immersed in the culture itself only enriched the learning experience.
Always keep an open mind.
