What Our Students are Saying
"ISA's staff is extremely friendly and helpful. When I needed advice on anything from a bite to eat in the city, to where to go on weekend excursions, they were always excited to help me find my way, and that has made all the difference in my study abroad experience."
Jeffrey M.University of Tulsa
"Studying in another country is a huge opportunity and the beginning of finding and creating yourself. Learn from the people you meet and try to meet as many people as you can! Connections with people are what make the experiences in an amazing new place even more enjoyable."
Lindsey W.West Chester University
"ISA was absolutely amazing, they made it so easy and comforting to be away from home. Would recommend!"
Matthew V.Matthew V., Ramapo College of New Jersey
"Studying abroad with ISA was hands down the best time of my life. I learned and experienced so much about myself, others, and other cultures. I learned to not let obstacles affect what I want to do, and how to really conquer my goals. I would do it again in a heartbeat- Dublin is my favorite place on earth."
Morgan B.University of Massachusetts, Lowell
"My time in Ireland was the best 5 months of my entire life. My advice would be to try and find something to do every weekend. Go into the city as much as you can and simply explore. Just walk around with no real purpose. It makes you become much more independent and you'll find loads of cool, local stuff along the way."
Thomas O.Widener University
"Studying abroad was definitely one the best decisions I could have made and the experience was absolutely amazing! ISA was there throughout the whole process and made everything flow as smoothly as possible. I couldn't have asked for a better experience in Galway!"
