AlexandraAge: 19-24FemaleWinter Park, FloridaRollins CollegeGreat city and great learning experience08/18/2015How could this program be improved?
The location of the apartments was in very close proximity to a more dangerous area of the city. However, I was never personally put into danger in Dublin.Response from CAPA International EducationDear Alex, Thank you so much for your positive feedback on the Dublin program! We are excited to learn about the impact it has had upon you, and look forward to hearing about where your experience takes you from here. We are sorry to hear about your perceptions of your safety during your time in Dublin. Dublin is a very safe city, and the security of our students is a top priority in any location in which our students are accommodated, alongside being reflective of Dublin's global nature. Distinctions between environments at home and abroad can impact a student's sense of the place in which they are living. We would be curious to hear more about what led to this sentiment and will reach out to you directly to discuss further. Cheers, The CAPA Team

The program's schedule changed often, which made planning trips difficult. There were make up classes that would occasionally land on a Friday. MyEducation events were fantastic ways to explore Florence with a staff member, but often coincided with classes. I wish I had been able to experience more of the program.

I would probably say that a bit more communication could improve the quality of education in our courses, but otherwise, there's nothing more that I would change. And if our courses were not so long, I'm sure that we would glean more from the materials being presented- there's a lot of information all at once, and it takes a bit of time to digest it all.

The program could have been improved by having more group activities or trips planned. There were 3 required events that we went on and they were all a lot of fun. They did a good job of mixing us up at the events so we met more people on the program. It would have been nice to have more excursions planned with the CAPA group.

The only thing that I would change about this program would be that I would have liked for the classes to be a little bit more organized. But, overall I did enjoy them!
