My memories over the four years were a celebration of learning, trying new things I never did before, volunteering with non-profit organisations, making the best of friends from across the world, while pursuing my own personal passions of music and travel. This all challenged and nurtured my mindset of thinking. Inevitably it made me fall in love with Trinity, Dublin, and Ireland.
The most enjoying part of my experience in Ireland is Trinity’s multicultural and multidisciplinary environment. Trinity offers an academic environment where students from various countries and disciplines come together. Before the first semester, I had been thinking that integration might be a serious problem for me. During the semester, I observed that all of the international students had experienced similar phases and it is quite easy to be integrated into the school environment.
I absolutely loved attending classes and learning about topics and issues that I feel passionate about and I absolutely loved living in Ireland and learning about Irish culture, music and art. I particularly enjoyed being a part of various societies that Trinity offers.
The postgraduate program in TCD was academically challenging and rewarding, which has always encouraged the development of the brightest minds, as well as creativity, innovation, research and development of societal reforms. I also noticed that TCD’s strategic plan focuses on developing interdisciplinary research of international significance, which is related to my area of interest.
