“I’m immensely happy that I made the decision to study abroad at University College Dublin during the spring 2019 semester. I had the opportunity to experience a whole new educational system and national culture, make a new set of friends, and see parts of the world and hear viewpoints that I never would’ve gotten the chance to otherwise.” – Caroline Tien '20
Each year more than 130 Haverford students take advantage of the opportunity to study abroad.
