When studying abroad is the smart option
Utrecht University, the Netherlands; liberal arts and sciences
I love the international atmosphere here, and it has been the best decision I have ever made to leave Ireland and study abroad. I’ve made friends from all over the world, and I learn as much in the classroom as I do from living with people from different cultures. It’s an experience that couldn’t be had by staying in Dublin. It’s tough, as you have to work consistently throughout, but I have learned a lot more from studying this way, and it’s lot less stressful in the long run.
Saxion University of Applied Sciences, the Netherlands; physiotherapy
The programme really goes beyond my expectations. I love it so much. I honestly thought it would take me so long to settle in, but it only took about a month. Before coming over here I was only motivated by the course, but there’s so much more than that. I’ve made really good friends from all over the world that I know I’ll have for the rest of my life. Studying abroad for me was a terrifying decision to make. I now realise it’s the best decision I ever made. I know it’ll be the best four years of my life.
Szent Istvan University, Budapest, Hungary; veterinary science
I have found my time here at Szent Istvan University faculty of veterinary science very enjoyable and rewarding. The lecturers are very helpful and enthusiastic. They help us with our studies and in all other aspects needed to achieve our goal of becoming veterinarians. At times it has been challenging, but with hard work and sheer determination it is possible. I feel confident that the knowledge I have gained, both theoretically and practically, will allow me and future students to become exceptional veterinarians and to work side by side with colleagues in Ireland as equals.
