I wish I had known...
It's not true that in the houses and classes the heating is too high. I would have brought wormer clothes.

Final comments
Irish students don't want to talk to international students. In international marketing there is only one class with irish students, in the others there are only erasmus students.

Academic
Course recommendations
Don't think too much, take it easy! The level in Environmental Science is not so high, that you easily can pass the exams with a little effort! Get some old exams and go through them, that's it! Visit the websites of the lecturers; there is often good information available (but only a few people look at them)! Don't give up, if you don't the Irish accents during the first month! You will understand them after a while, for sure!

Give the notes to the students in the beginning of the semester! Overheads are shit and hard to follow, if you don't understand the words or if you have to listen to the lecturer while copying the overhead!

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: With a family
Why?
Sorry for being so rude but after having spent a year in the United States, I haven't really improve my english more than that. The main problem was that our class had 100 per cent of Erasmus (Spanish, German, French). I would not recommend anybody to go for an Eramus exchange whether your own objective is to improve your english. When you hear Erasmuss talking in english, sometimes its chocking! Sorry about that!

My accomodation was really great and confortable. Besides the fact that is sometimes very cold. My house was not really well-isolated! However, the atmosphere was really warmful!

in a business course may be a bit more details about how to do business, how to open up new markets, how to win and keep cosumers, strategies and practical ways of earning money and having success instead of just general knowledge about trade and international politics.

Come by car to this country! The roads are amazing and you have to have good dampers.But to travel around to find small roads leading to the nicest places, cliffs, beaches and towns and to feel the independence to start a road trip when ever you want, a car is important.

Academic
Course recommendations
Courses are not very demanding. They ask for alot of commitment (presentations, essays...) but are not really difficult. If you have the chance, choose a HONS Degree, not just the higher degree. I would do so, if I were to restart the Year...

Give some sense/meaning to Project Work... I mostly had the impression, it was just to keep people busy.. (when teachers are not really interested in the outcomes...)

Personal recommendation
Could be better assortment of food, vegetbles, fruits in college canteen. Lecturer could write manual for students, also in floppy diskette, CD- ROM(in order to learn from subject studies just what really is needed, instead of serching for something in the books).
