I highly recommend the National College of Ireland. I started studying here last September. There will be an orientation event just after entering the school, and the international office will hold a weekly tour after the school starts. I want to say that this is not only a place where you can learn knowledge, but also a place that is friendly to students and allows you to combine work and rest, and to study and live happily. The school has a good location and convenient transportation; the school canteen is rich and affordable for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and the student dormitory and gym are on the campus, which is convenient and fast; I have never regretted studying at NCI.
