Semester at IT Carlow

I spent the fall semester in Carlow, studying at IT Carlow in their Brewing and Distilling Program. My major back at home is chemical engineering with a minor in brewery engineering, so this was a great opportunity for me to take a deeper academic dive into the specifics of the brewing industry, which is where I hope to work once I graduate. It was also a great opportunity for me to travel and explore a new country and learn about a different culture. The folks at Learn International took great care of me, both before I traveled, and while I was in Ireland. They worked with me to find the best housing option, which for me ended up being a shared home with roommates, close to the college. (A homestay was also offered as an option.) While I was in Ireland, they were always just a text or phone call away if I had any questions or concerns, and offered great travel advice when I decided to adventure outside of Carlow. Even though I was a full-time student while I was there, I had time for several weekend trips to explore more of Ireland and even made it over to Scotland for a few days.

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
As part of my program at IT Carlow, we had the chance to get a tour of the new Tullamore Dew distilling facility. This was a great learning opportunity, to be able to see behind the scenes of a large distilling operation, learn about their process and equipment, talk directly with the employees and ask questions.
