I would highly recommend Trinity College Dublin as a place to study abroad. I enjoyed my time there incredibly so and even considered extending the time I planned study there. The campus is gorgeous. The academics were challenging and engaging. Students were very friendly. And Dublin is an incredible city to live and study in!
Future participants should know that logistics such as course selection and credit transfer is quite tedious and completed very slowly at Trinity, but is worth that hassle.
Post- study abroad in Dublin, I had a more significant culture shock trying to adjust back to my regular life at school in California because I continuously compare it to my life in Dublin which seemed exponentially more intellectually and socially stimulating. My favorite memory is intensely writing final papers for hours in the Trinity library and then taking a break to grab a pint casually with friends at the pub across the street or at the Pav and then going back to the library to continue writing.

How can this program be improved?
Resources and help during course selection could be enhanced and timelines of transferring credits back to home universities could be improved.

I went to Trinity College Dublin in Dublin Ireland. I had a lot fun, the culture does not tend to be too different from the US so it won't make you extremely homesick. It is different though and really great. Trinity was not great for academics for me just because a lot of the work was learning on your own and I do not like doing that. I love class discussions. Learning on your own is what a lot of European programs do though. Trinity is also very old fashioned with registration. I loved the city of Dublin and would love to live their in the future. I also got to go to so many countries while abroad, my favorite was either Amsterdam or Berlin. Both are incredibly unique and diverse in how they live. The people I went with were lovely and I made some great connections. The trips provided by IFSA Butler were a lot of fun and educational. I learned a lot about the country of Ireland in my five months but also about myself and what i want and need in the future. Going abroad is an amazing experience and even if you do not study abroad I would recommend going on trips to other countries! The program I went through was phenomenal and all the people that worked there were so personable and helpful.

How can this program be improved?
Registration is hard at Trinity but I do not know how to fix that unless the school does it. The program I went through was phenomenal and all the people that worked there were so personable and helpful.

It is one word to perfectly describe my studying abroad experience at Trinity College. This word is challenging. I watched countless times a YouTube video presenting Trinity campus and College students testimonials before my exchange. It made me impatient to come to Dublin and have similar experience of studying at Trinity. During the first days of my Erasmus I realised that my dream of studying abroad finally came true and a place where I would study and live for a few months meets my expectations.
I was impressed by unique and enormous campus and an extraordinary Long Room in the Old Library. Additionally, accessible libraries with wide range of books and supportive academic staff helped me to exceed my knowledge from my faculty.
Experience of studying abroad taught me that students from different part of the Europe and world have similar problems to overcome in their lives. Not only did I learn a lot from studies but also through many valuable talks with my new international friends I realised that I want to explore world and travel as often as I can.
I can strongly recommend studying abroad to everybody who wants to develop herself or himself and have unforgettable memories.

My name is Gonzalo, I’m 23 years old and I’m a Spanish student. I´m presently completing the 4rd year of the Bachelors’ degree in Chemistry. My Erasmus experience has been AMAZING.

I arrived the 10th of January, the first days I was shaking like a leaf, I was completely lost and I felt that everybody spoke much better English than me. The day of the welcome meeting for new foreign students I didn’t know anybody and I started talking with other international students. After the welcome meeting, everybody vanished so my first impression was that it was so difficult making new friends in an Erasmus programme.

Since the day after, all my fears disappeared. I signed up a Dublin tour that Trinity College had advised me to go tanks to an email. This was the key to start knowing new friends from many different countries: Poland, Sweden, France, Italy, Belgium, Finland, Austria, Switzerland, Canada, etc. We have had the chance to share our time, to visit this wonderful country, to learn about other cultures and countries and above all, to become great friends. I’ve also made Irish friends in trampoline or in incredible societies that I joined or in the events I assisted such as quizzes and parties.

On the other hand, talking about academics, I was working on my Final Degree Project in a chemistry group. It has been difficult because of the language but very enriching at the same time. I’ve learnt many new things in terms of chemistry and I’ve been able to work in a high level laboratory different from my home university’s labs.

I would strongly recommend to everyone this experience. If you ask me, getting out of our comfort zone is one of the most important things to live in life.
