Taking Care of Yourself on Exchange

The World of Trinity

By Tatiana Morand, Visiting Student Blogger

Tatiana is a third-year English and Business student from the University of Waterloo in Canada. She’s thrilled to have the chance to travel across Europe and experience the lively literary scene of Dublin.

Going on exchange is a pretty stressful experience. You’re in a completely different country (or even a different continent!), surrounded by new people in a place you’ve never been… I could go on, but I think you see my point.

Study Ireland - Stories & Tips from International Students

Xiao Yao is a Chinese student studying abroad at the University of Limerick. Here, she shares her general tips for incoming students to UL. Check out UL’s new website developed specifically for China: http://www.ulchina.org/

Hello, I am Xiao Yao, a study abroad student from China, and by now, I have been in Limerick for a month. This month is the most amazing one I have ever had in my life, trying new things, making friends both from home and abroad and experiencing different cultures. And now, I really want to share some information and feelings with you.

Student Voices: Rebecca Crunden- MA in International Relations

UCC International Students

dscf2772My name is Rebecca Crunden and I’m a postgrad student at UCC. Although I grew up in Texas, I left when I was 18 and my entire college education has been in Ireland. I finished the Master’s in International Relations course less than a month ago and I’m going directly into a PhD in History. To be honest, I think there’s no other university in the world at which I could have done such a fast and stress-free transition. I’d heard from other students that MA programmes tend to be solitary experiences with long periods of loneliness unless you’ve remained in the same location since undergrad. To my relief, I found this anything but the case.

Two years ago, I was on a gap year following the completion of my undergrad in Maynooth. I left final year feeling burned out and needed a break from studying. But October arrived and…

Semester Start Up Programme – A Reflection

The World of Trinity

By Abigail Borges [Visiting Student]

Hi! I’m Abby, a third year, single semester visiting student at Trinity College Dublin and a junior at Brown University in spirit. I am from the small town of West Greenwich in the small state of Rhode Island, where I attend Brown and study History and Political Science. I am in the same course at Trinity, and have been spending my time studying (of course), sampling desserts (necessary), and exploring as much of Dublin and Ireland as I can squeeze into four months.

Why I chose to study @Trinity College Dublin

“Trinity’s four centuries old heritage, inspiring college community, and global leadership in graduate employability has rendered the past four years of my student life highly rewarding. And along the way, I have fallen for Ireland’s zestful culture, inclusive and tolerant environment, and its promise of novel opportunities” (Read my blog)

What would your life be like if you had never studied abroad?

Now, think of how different a friend’s life would be if you could just convince them to go abroad, too.

We share your passion for international education. That’s why the Institute of International Education (IIE) has joined forces with Go Overseas and other partner organizations to mobilize at least 10,000 study abroad alumni to nominate students to #GoStudyAbroad.
