“Before we made the decision to study in Dublin, we were both very nervous about idea. Now, looking back, we are both very proud that we stepped out of our comfort zones. Travelling to Dublin was an experience of a lifetime. When we were in Ireland, we learned to go-with-the-flow more, and to embrace every opportunity to travel and experience the new places that were presented to us.
ITT Dublin’s Inter-Cultural Society, and the college staff helped to facilitate this for us in every way they could, which helped to turn any discomforts into exciting experiences. This worldly perspective has truly made our post-European life more fulfilling. Our advice to other students considering traveling abroad is: if you hesitate, you might just miss out on the amazing sights, experiences, and friendships that Dublin has to offer. Bringing our wonderful memories back home is truly the best souvenir.”
~Brandon Cormier and Kristine deJong
“I truly enjoyed my time in Dublin, and the degree I achieved at ITT Dublin gave me the qualifications I required to be accepted into the Master’s Degree Program I am currently enrolled in here in Canada. I would defiantly recommend this route to any other Canadian College Students. “
