Yes, I recommend this program

Definitely recommend

Absolutely loved my semester at UCD and the Arcadia program as a whole. While I only made friends with a couple of other students on the program, I am still glad I chose Arcadia study abroad because of the wonderful support and extracurricular experiences offered by the program. The Arcadia staff was an amazing group of people who only added to how much I loved Dublin and UCD. The extracurricular activities also gave me the opportunity to meet students studying through Arcadia’s other Ireland programs.

University College Dublin

Studying in Dublin, Ireland was the best experience I've ever had. I had classes on campus Monday through Friday, but was able to travel nearly every weekend. I lived in apartment-style housing on campus with five other housemates. I was able to join clubs on campus and make friends from all over the world. My entire trip was life changing, but my favorite experiences were just exploring the country of Ireland and meeting new people!

What would you improve about this program?
I really enjoyed my accommodation while I was abroad but if I could change anything about this program it would be to allow students to live in apartments off campus, within the downtown area of Dublin.
