The first two weeks are tough but it radically changes after that. Enjoy your classes and go out as much as possible. Take good waterproof clothes. Smile!

Be aware of the academic fields you study. As for me, business studies was grant. But other fields may not be as great.

There is nothing really important to tell about. I didnīt have any problems or surprises, the biggest advice is to warn people that Ireland is not the poor country many people think, but itīs a wealthy country where most of the things are really expensive. I have to say, however, that roads, public transport and other facilities must be improved).

Studying in DCU will allow students to be more independent in terms of study, as they will be left with lots of free time that is supposed to be spent studying. It will be up to the student to keep up with the courses. If you are well organised, you can be up to date and benefit of some free time too, that will enable you to travel around ireland or to other countries in europe, as flying ticktes are really cheap if you buy them in Ryan Air.

As a person who had study abroad for one year now, I can say that studying away from my home and away from my family is the best thing that have ever happened to me. Not only in the academic perspective, but also personally. You learn how live is outside your parents protection, so I fully recommend every to study abroad at least one year.

The European program is really good, through sport activities it is really easy to meet new people, foreigners or irish. But in the student environnement it is easier to meet foreigners...mostly in 3rd and 4th years.

Globally this experience abroad was and is still very useful. It makes people be more mature, you discover such a lot of things, first you become more independent, then you meet a lot of new and very interesting people...well i think i will even try to get a job abroad in UK or even further.
