"It was such a memorable summer school experience from UCD in Ireland, where I made many new friends from different countries and gained valuable learning experiences. My English skills have greatly improved as the classes and group discussions were all in English.
I wanted to further study in business field after high school and understood that UCD has a reputable university ranking in the world. I am very glad that I have chosen this programme.
