END OF CLASSES
Walking from Class to Class in UL, I Always See this Tree, I always think about how long it has been here and how my own rootes have become one with Ireland!
It is so hard to believe the second semester has flew by! I cannot believe it is already finished! Unlike some of the other scholars, I was lucky enough to not have to take any final exams. Instead of exams, my course consisted of group assignments and presentations, which meant I was done with my second semester in the beginning of May, much earlier than a lot of the other students. I would much rather have to give presentations and write papers rather than take exams, so I was very happy I didn’t have to do much studying! I think I benefited much more from doing the group work because I learned how to work with individuals of different personalities and backgrounds, something I will have to do once I start working.
Studying at the University of Limerick has been a great experience. The UL campus is beautiful and everyone who works for the university was so welcoming and supportive of me and I really enjoyed the masters program I completed (Marketing, Consumption and Society). The professors are very interactive with their students and are always offering their help when it comes to assignments. I loved being in a class with individuals from all different backgrounds and cultures. I think this enhanced my overall learning experience because I was able to gain insights into how businesses work/think in other parts of the world. UL is a great place to study and is filled with friendly individuals who are always offering their support, especially to those students who are unfamiliar with the area.
