At which university did you spend your semester abroad?
Through HMKW, I got an opportunity to spend one of my semesters abroad in Dublin Business School in the beautiful country Ireland. It was the best decision and one of the most amazing experiences I had in my life.
How would you describe your experience abroad?
Studying in Ireland allowed me to travel and explore places which I dreamed of, while also gaining quality education at the university. I learned a lot about myself and gained insights into potential career routes that I will pursue in future. Moreover, it has changed my life in so many positive ways, and I believe it can do the same for someone else the way it did for me.
What was the biggest challenge during your semester abroad?
New experiences will always come with different obstacles. The challenge which I personally faced was with the accommodation. As Dublin is the busiest city in Ireland, finding accommodation specially within the budget and near city center is very difficult. Therefore, I had to stay in the hostel for almost 2 weeks after my arrival. Therefore, make sure you arrange your stay beforehand. Moreover, watch out for the scams while searching online through different platforms and website. Similarly, make sure you personally visit and get official contract before making any payments.
Secondly, Dublin is known for its windy and unpredictable weather so make sure to come prepared with proper arrangements.
