“My time at DIFC was simply exceptional. The support I received from the staff of DIFC has helped me grow in countless ways over a short period of time. Being a class rep, I make a lot of observations and I have seen a similar growth in my classmates from different nationalities. On arrival to Dublin, I was quite timid and did not know what to expect in Ireland, but with help from the DIFC Student Services, I settled in quickly..”

“I went to DIFC to further strengthen my application into The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI). Not only does DIFC help you grow as an individual both emotionally and academically, but provides all the basic needs required for us as international students studying abroad. I can only thank DIFC enough with what they have offered me the past year. I have learned a lot, and got the most proficient academic attention I have ever received.”
