Going to another country for studies does sound as an exciting venture. But with instances of racial and cultural differences coupled with communal isolation, the excitement fizzles out and evaporates in the form of anxiety and a sense of isolation. Going to an unfamiliar place is always nervous feeling, and if it’s for a considerable period of time, it seems like an uphill task. Trips and vacations can be managed and the fear factor is hardly existent as guides and agencies guide you through everything, but when a country is visited for academic purpose, a pall of distress does encompass most of the people. Going to another country to graduate sends chills down the spines of many people, and it’s only the value of that certification which motivates people to endure their fears. Be it a top University or a country with a remarkable education system, that fear cannot be expunged. But, there is one exception among all the countries of the world that calms down nerves and even sends a message of calm. Ireland is the most desired academic destination of the world for a reason.
