Summer in Dublin

Everything about my trip was incredibly exciting. The only thing I would like to harshly review, is the program director in Ireland. It was a little sad because I really loved the staff in the US but the guy in Ireland was vey racist and did not believe in diversity. I wrote an article about it for my internship and it is linked here: http://www.metroeireann.com/news/914/diversity-brings-ireland-peace-not-creeping-islamification.html

How can this program be improved?

Response from CISabroad

We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your program overall. What you've described as the program director's actions do not reflect the values of CISabroad. We will be looking into this issue -thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Intern in Dublin

Overall my experience with CISabroad was amazing. The onsite director was helpful with any issues that I faced when it came to my place of work. It was reassuring to know that there was always someone that I could seek help from. Having the option to go on excursions was also a bonus which made the stay even better. My time in Ireland was great and the placement which started out questionable turned into the best experience I could have asked for. Definitely glad I took this journey with CISabroad.

How can this program be improved?
The only improvement that could be made is the accommodation. I was placed in a random appartment with others which were not in the program. I found this strange and a little unsettling since there where others interns in another apartment with spare rooms during the time of my stay. However, as time passed I got use to it and loved my time in Dublin.

Unfortunate and unusual circumstances.

It is hard for me to adequately review my experience. I went 2 weeks without power at my apartment. My first internship was at a museum with 13 other interns where a staff of 3 people oversaw us. Although, CIS reassigned me a new internship and reimbursed me for my time without power. It was very stressful and extra expensive. I am glad for the for the growth and learning experiences. However, the trip kind of sucked.

How can this program be improved?
Obviously, make sure that the land lord pays the electric bill and do extra research on how many interns to employee ration.

Intern in Dublin!

CISAbroad was extremely helpful during my entire 8-week experience in Dublin, Ireland. My on-site program coordinator wanted to know how my internship was going and would take all of the interns out to dinner and on excursions to make our experience amazing. I had a few challenges with my housing, it was CISAbroad's first time using the apartments that I lived in. Although it was at the perfect location, we had a few problems with our electricity and our housing would not fix it. CIS took all of the necessary steps to make sure we were all comfortable and reimbursed us for our troubles! With the money I received back from rent, I was able to go skydiving on my last week in Ireland! Overall, my experience with CISAbroad and Dublin was a 10/10 and I wouldn't change anything!

How can this program be improved?
I loved this program. We had many excursions all over Ireland, some overnight, and some just day trips. We visited the Cliffs of Moher and Galway, Kilkenny and Wicklow county, and Belfast in Northern Ireland. I would have loved to go out of the country on a planned all-inclusive excursion with my CISAbroad program coordinator and all of the other interns. However, it just was not in the budget, which is understanding.
