My week starts with beginning Italian class on Monday. I usually wake up around 8:30am and have breakfast in my apartment and get ready. Sometimes I’ll stop at a café near my apartments called “Bread and Break” to get a croissant and a cappuccino before class.

Seeing double decker buses on every road, being walking distance from the heart of a city, and figuring out how to make a schedule in a completely new country are a few of the things that one is required to adjust to in their first few days in Ireland. Here is a list of a few tips of how to adjust to your new country when studying abroad!

1. Meet new people

When you first arrive in your new country, you will meet a group of other CAPA students that feel the exact same way: tired, excited, and hungry. Over the first few days you will have multiple opportunities to meet other students and explore the city together.

My Advice For Students Considering Studying Abroad

Jul 7, 2017 8:30:00 AM / by Julie Ritz

In her last post, Sally tells us why she thinks study abroad is something every student should do.

---

Study abroad is a very different experience that can help develop your outlook on the world. Even though you will still be taking classes while you are abroad, it is very unlike your regular college life. It may also provide perspective on your area of study that you can’t quite get in a regular classroom. I think study abroad can be a really great opportunity to expand anyone’s education, and I recommend it.

I have been extremely lucky during this trip to have such a fantastic living situation here in Dublin. For starters, I live very comfortably in the StayCity aparthotels on Saint Augustine street. StayCity boasts a spacious and modern living area with two double bedrooms and a full-service en suite kitchen.

The location is incredibly central. StayCity is a 10-minute walk from the Temple Bar district, the city’s cultural hub, a 20-minute walk from Griffith College, where I take my classes, and a 30-minute walk to St. Stephen’s Green, a great park for a nice walk or picnic in the center of southern Dublin. It is also just steps away from the necessities. Within a 5-minute radius are two grocery stores, Tesco Express and Lidl, a pharmacy, two convenience stores, Spar and Centra, several little coffee shops, and plenty of restaurants, both sit-down and take-away. I also live right on the river, which makes it easy to navigate through the city with the Liffey as my guide.
