Luciana from Brazil

BSc (Hons) in Early Childhood Care, Health & Education

Luciana from BrazilMy name is Luciana Reis. I am an international student from Brazil and joined LYIT in September 2015. I am currently on the third year of my four-year degree in Early Childhood Care, Health and Education.

Having lived here for 2 years and having previously lived in other countries, I must confess that Ireland has something extremely special about itself and made me feel so welcomed and at home from the moment I arrived here.

Ireland is such a fascinating country, with incredibly beautiful nature, endless places to visit, rich culture, delicious food and lovely people. Since arriving, I have had the opportunity to see visit lots of different parts of the country and absolutely love it!

My experience in LYIT has been just as great. The institute has a lively and busy atmosphere with plenty happening all the time. On one hand you have a college with such an impressive structure, delivering excellent standard of education, qualified professionals who are extremely helpful and support you throughout the course. On the other hand, the institute promotes the opportunity for you to have a healthy social experience as well, making new friends, experiencing a different culture, taking part in clubs and societies to name but a few.

To anyone considering studying abroad I would have to say that it is an amazing experience. You grow not only as a student but as a person as well. You also get to have a new place to call home, make new friends that will last a lifetime!
