Building knowledge and studying abroad

Dublin Institute of Technology
4.0/5
Overall
I studied a broad range of business subjects including marketing, human resource management, supply chain management, accounting, sales management, I.T., among others. Within my degree I also spent 4 years studying Spanish and Spanish modules relating to learning the language as well as learning about Spanish culture and arts and Spanish/Latin American current affairs. I spent one year submerged in the Spanish language and culture during my third year at university where I had the opportunity to study abroad. I studied in Alicante where I took all business and language related modules in Spanish. I also completed a year-long business project regarding entrepreneurship in the area that I lived in, being Alicante city. Without the previous knowledge from studying in DIT I would have struggled greatly to chose a project title and subject modules in Spain. Overall I gained a good grasp of the business world via each module and I feel that it will benefit me immensely in the future.

Pros
broad range of modules, option to study abroad, experienced lecturers, wide range of resources available to assist in my studies, ability to learn from peers
Cons
modules weren't as indepth about worldwide business negotiations, it would have been of more value to study more business modules in Spanish to learn greater Spanish

There is really nothing like having an expectation and having it met and surpassed; my experience with the university has been wonderful and the course content however so engaging has given me insight into the ways and methods to truly provide value when I get the opportunity to work. It sure is a great plan

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
Because I like to have my own space when home from work or university. Also, being in a campus is part of the past as I am now a Bachelor Graduate in International Business and Management and ready to face the work-business life.

Personal comments
The housing was not well organiwsed by the host institution, as we were left to ourselves to find a suitable place to live for a few months. However, I do believe this method makes one more independent and responsible as one has to seek, negotiate and adapt, in a totally different and foreign country.

Personal comments
Just arriving Dublin we had some problems with the language since english language spoken by irish people is sometimes hard to understand,but day by day you get used to it and then you take their way of speaking as well.Complementing the International Business and Languages Course we had "English for academic purposes" at different level and thats was really helpful for us.Interacting with with foreigner students and irish people when that was possible was a very important to improve our english.

Personal comments
a lot of typical irish pubs, can become a little bit boring after 2 weeks; recently some more international style bars have opened, watch out for Zansibar, Pravda, SpiBar, QBar,... not too much venues playing alternative kind of music, mostly techno or traditional irish, try out Whelans or Shelter if you prefer a good cafe and a really good piece of apple pie go to the Winding Stair Cafe, next to the Half Penny bridge or the Cafe Mocca, near to St.Green Shopping Centre

Final comments
the best thing in Ireland is the nature and thatswhy use your spartime to travel as much as possible; the wether isn't that bad as it is said; the will not be cheated with the amount of beer you get, i.e. pints are overfull, get used to the typical irish way of living-they don't complain and are very friendly and don't be surprised about the straight queues at bus stations
