1.How you find Irish student life? How you survived in Irish lifestyle? What challenges u faced? What are
advantages and disadvantages studying in Ireland?
It was my dream to travel abroad for my higher education and incidentally I chose Ireland. I did a bit of research on Ireland before my journey and found out that they are extremely friendly and ”full of craic” people. And to be honest they are. Most of the people over here are lovely. Coming from a different culture and quite a closed society where studying abroad is mostly glared or negatively commented upon, I would say the student life over here is quite exciting. I only started drinking or going out to clubs for the first time over here and it has been ecstatic for me. Maybe at times, I was a bit carried away by the whole of Irish aura and being the first time to travel somewhere so far but overall it has been a wonderful experience.Irish culture I would say is one of the biggest challenges over here apart from of course, securing a job but the later part is difficult everywhere (explained in detail in q3). I would say every country you shall be visiting; the first thing is to know about is its culture. If you are more acquainted with its culture you would feel more at
home and feel more welcomed by the residents of the country. But fortunately, I had my host family to teach me about that and I think that I have a pretty good grasp of Irish culture right now. I have also been commented by many people that they thought I have been living here for many years since according to
them, I have “imbibed” their culture quite well.
