BA in Culinary Arts, IT Tralee (Completed L6 at IIHCS, transfer to year 2 at IT Tralee)
Studying in Ireland is not a common choice for Hong Kong students, but studying in Ireland could be a good alternative that you may consider.
I am a year 2 student studying Bachelor of Arts in Culinary Arts in Institute Technology of Tralee. In this programme, I am involved in different kind of research and training in the Kitchen. Skills learned in year one such as reaction of different combination of ingredients, food biology and nutrition analysis, they are foundation knowledge for my current and future learning.
Studying Culinary Arts here is so much different from what people at home normally think, such as the operation of the kitchen, very often we need to work on our own and learn to handle different problems. I am also benefited from small class learning that allows me to receive more focused professional support and teaching by experienced lecturers in the industry which has facilitated my learning very much. I am happy that I chose studying in Ireland.
BA (Hons) Social Science, UCD – 2017 Year 1
My study life in UCD is awesome. As UCD has a massive campus with all kinds of facilities such as libraries, gym room, sports courts etc. It indeed provides a comfortable environment for me to study, learn and enjoy the college life. I have met some friends in my course and in a society. I really make my college life more colourful so that it is not just about study. The lecturers in UCD are very professional too. They teach very well and always feel free to answer our questions. In many aspects, UCD really gives me a nice college experience for studying aboard.
BA (Hons) Social Science, UCD – 2017 Year 2
Dublin is a lovely place and UCD has a lovely campus. Nothing more than enjoying the university life in a place where people are kind and approachable. You always want to study abroad, leaving your comfort zone without having so much pressure and here is the place. The weather here is nice as well, even though it is rather cold, but why not? Academic-wise the lecturer here are always friendly and you will meet a lot of international students here from the USA, Europe etc. so I could always meet different people and even organise study group with them!
Studying sports and health science at IT Carlow 2016
You can’t imagine how nice and kind the people are in Ireland. There is no racism here. I regularly play basketball with players from different countries every Friday and we always have a great fun. One more thing I have to mention is that the living cost is much cheaper than HK’s
MScIM , Trinity College Dublin 2016
As a place of great historical and cultural importance, Dublin is definitely one of my favourite cities. My journey with Trinity College Dublin has made my overall Irish experience an even better one. I took part in the programme of MSc in International Management and it has definitely opened the gateway to the career I aimed to pursue. Other than gaining solid academic foundations, I have established the most valuable relationships with all the young professionals I met along the way. Ireland is not just a place where I enhanced my academic profile, but also a great setting in which I have developed my global perspective. My choice to Trinity will never be regretted and Dublin will always be the Place-To-Be for everyone who enjoys life.
