“Cork is a great a city to live, it has everything of a big city, but it is small and very safe. People in CIT were always very helpful with us SWB students, which make our experience much better. The  airport and the facility to go to Dublin, gives us the opportunity to travel around Europe and to know different countries and cultures.”

“Live in Ireland, study in Cork and learn about Irish culture and behaviours has been an amazing experience, and much of it due the CIT. Teaching is practical and objective. The teachers were always attentive, patient and really sought that we learned something, even with the difficulty of learning through another language.”

“Cork is an amazing city, friendly and with an intense nightlife. In my opinion, to be an abroad student here in Ireland has been really important to my personal growth.
