'Stories from the Road'

The Euroguidance Ireland Centre asked two students to generate blogs to illustrate what it’s really like to study abroad - warts and all!
Two students, Claire and Seán travelled to Paderborn, Germany and Montpellier, France respectively, in order to study for a year as part of the undergraduate programmes in DCU, Dublin.
From there they reported back to us on all aspects of studying abroad from homesickness, to meeting new friends and how precious Irish tea bags become!

In May 2020 NCGE publishd an article from a student about her experience of studying in Spain.
