Ireland was one of my go to go places. I got to know about this college when I was preparing and looking up for the courses to study abroad. The college curriculum and other facilities match to that of Ivy league colleges. Also, this helped me from saving money as Ireland is much cheaper than other English speaking countries. Thus, I went ahead to fill the application form of €35 for the further application process.
