"In the beginning of 2013, I decided to improve my student life. I signed up for the Science Without Borders programme in Ireland and on September 2013 I moved to Tralee, an Irish seaside town. Since then I am studying wildlife biology at IT Tralee and I have been learning many different things about my course.
Tralee is charming and small, with many groups of international students living here.There are pubs where I can drink, dance and make friends. I live in Tralee comfortably without spending too much money. It is a quiet town with a beautiful park where I can go for a walk especially on a sunny day. I really enjoy living here.
The Institute of Technology of Tralee is a well-known school for international students especially as they have the freedom to adapt the subjects to their need. They have a great support from the international office that help them in everything they require.
It has been the best single experience in my life and the best choice I have made for my career."
