my name is Jonas Biba and I’m currently spending a semester abroad in Ireland (Dublin, to be precise) as part of my dual study program in “Digital Business Management”. Fortunately, TecAlliance is providing me with a lot of organizational and financial support. Even though I’ve “only” been here for just over a month and will spend another three months in Ireland/Dublin, I can only advise all (future) students at TecAlliance now: Take this opportunity! Such a semester abroad can also bring you so much further personally and you simply experience so many unforgettable moments during this time. You will meet so many new people so quickly, make friends with them and get out of your own comfort zone. Especially Ireland, which is also known in Germany as the “Emerald Isle”, offers spectacular landscapes and sights such as the Cliffs of Moher, which can be seen in the pictures. On the other hand, it is also known for its countless pubs, which offer a unique atmosphere. I could experience this myself in Dublin, where the pubs literally line up. For this, one also gladly accepts the sometimes rather modest weather and the admittedly high cost of living.
