Cead Mile Fáilte (A Hundred Thousand Welcomes in Irish)

The final group of UCEAP students who will be studying in Ireland this Fall have arrived on the Emerald Isle! This past weekend, the Edinburgh Study Centre staff welcomed 17 UC students who will be spending this semester at Trinity College Dublin. The 2 day orientation included not only essential presentations on academics, health and safety, and cultural introductions, but the group also spent part of their time exploring Dublin on a guided bus tour, visiting the Book of Kells and attending a “Celtic Nights” celebration filled with traditional Irish food, music and dancing. It was great craic! Welcome to Ireland, students! We wish you all the best as you begin your adventures in Dublin.
