Attending university in UK or Ireland

Jump to last reply

My youngest has expressed interest in attending univerisity in either Ireland or the UK. She's looking into University of Edinburgh, St. Andrews and Trinity and plans to be an economics major. She is an American, qualifies for Irish citizenship (though hasn't applied) and would spend the entire 4 years of her undergraduate life there. She wants to do more than just a semester or two abroad. Can anyone provide any feedback of any nature? Or suggest websites to look at ? We've read as much as we can on the school's own websites and wikipedia.

It's hard to assess what kind of experience she should expect or to evaluate the comparitive quality of the education between the schools, so any comment would be appreciated. She's only a sophomore so we have plenty of time to evaluate how realistic this idea might be.
