University College Dublin

At UCD I had a lot of down time and only had classes 3 days a week. There was only a final exam and a paper due at the end of the semester, which for me was not fun because you never had homework so as a visual/hands on learner I had to work harder to get a good grade. We lived on campus in dorms with other abroad or local students. All of my roommates were from Ireland and I just loved them. I felt pretty safe walking around campus by myself but going into town alone would never happen because even in groups we ran into some bad situations.

How can this program be improved?
We were able to meet other groups from the API program around Ireland, but we weren't really able to interact with them a lot so it was kind of annoying having to be with everyone because if one person was missing or late we all were.
Yes, I recommend
