During the journey of applying for dental school, I had never imagined myself ending up in Europe, let alone Ireland! Initially I was fixated on staying within North America.

If I could rewind to about a year and a half ago, I could confidently tell you that I did not see myself moving from Ottawa to attend Trinity College Dublin (TCD). The roller coaster dental applications put you through was one in which you would never know where you would end up and when.…

I am loving the experience and the program at UCC. I was very lucky to enter with a great group of Canadians into the GED program last year and we are now all getting along great! Although it is very challenging at times to be away from my family and my fiancé, it is so…

I am thoroughly enjoying my studies at UCC and am very relieved that I ended up here. The GED program is great. The end of last year was quite a challenge with a heavy work load and many written exams, but a welcome challenge. This year has been very exciting so far as we are doing much…
