“I am really enjoying studying at UCC and in Ireland. I have no regrets about choosing UCC for my dentistry degree and the GED program here has been very interesting and stimulating. The quality of teaching here is top notch and all of the professors are very happy to help. I am in my second year and we’ve started seeing patients already and spend most of our time learning skills hands-on rather than in the classroom.

Ireland has been a fantastic place to live in. Cork is a lovely town with lots to do, it’s a great place to study and the people are all extremely friendly and welcoming. Adjusting to a new setting was a bit scary at first but settling in didn’t take too long. It was also a fantastic opportunity to meet new people and make new friends. I’m really looking forward to the years to come!”
