International Student Testimonial
Ireland is a beautiful country blessed with lush vegetation and blue ocean. I especially enjoy the lovely sceneries of green hills and the traditional Irish music. I will describe Ireland as the land of friendly people. I have travelled to many countries across few continents. I met many people of different background and nationalities. I wholeheartedly agree that Irish people are very cheerful, friendly and helpful. They also have a great sense of humor. I would say Ireland is one of the most pleasant countries for international students to settle in easily. English is commonly used and Dublin is a vibrant city, inhabited by a melting-pot society.
I met some of the most inspirational people in TCD that teach me about research and life. I enjoy attending the lectures organized by Trinity International Development Initiative (TIDI) and am especially inspired by the commitment shown to alleviate poverty in third world countries. Doing a PhD is a chance of a lifetime and it is like a dream come true for many students who want to experience studying abroad. I think it is important to be working with highly competent and motivated researchers to produce high impact research. I found all this here in the School of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences. The technical staff is skilled and supportive. The laboratories in Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute (TBSI) are equipped with state-of-art facilities. There are many scientific lectures and training sessions to attend and interesting professors to meet. The days spent here in TCD are always exciting indeed! In short, I finally understand what it means by “the world is your oyster”, at least in the research world, here in TCD.
