IT, Ireland and me…

A firsthand account, by Amplify student; Rohan Shaw, about his study abroad experiences via Amplify Mindware’s student exchange program in Ireland.

So far my days in Ireland has been very good. When I was heading to Athlone Institute of Technology(AIT), I thought it would be difficult to adjust with the people and might feel like the odd one in a new place. But things turned out to be very different from what I had anticipated. There are lots of International Students here coming from forty different nations.The people here are very friendly in nature and fun to interact with. Seeing so many Foreign students does not make feel left out.

I received a very warm welcome from the University’s International Office ,who helped me in getting acquainted  with the place. I was very thrilled when they made things easy for me by giving me a tour of the University Campus and a short tour of the town. They helped me in finding a suitable accommodation for myself and opening a bank account. It was very easy to adjust in a new place with the help of the International office.

The Professors here are very friendly and always eager to help. They are very patient and understanding and are always in the lookout to help weak students cope up with the rest of the class. The standard of teaching here is very high and since most of the professors teaching us have worked in the IT industry they give us real world examples in making us understand a topic. Overall the course is easy for us  as we have done quite a lot of programming and similar subjects at AmplifyMindware.


The campus is very huge and the sports facilities are excellent. All the major sports are played here and I actively participate in a few of them. The cafeteria is very big and serves a variety of items to choose from. There many things to get involved in here. There are plenty of events being organized every now and then. There is also an Indian Community here which organized the Diwali Celebrations, where I got an opportunity to interact with the Indian population living here. It was very different experience celebrating Diwali in Ireland and having Indian food for a change.

I would like to conclude by thanking AmplifyMindware for giving me the opportunity to pursue my further studies at AIT,Ireland and experience the lifestyle and diversity of culture. It is a very beautiful place to study in with a very warm  and friendly atmosphere and it feels great to be here.

Australia calling…..

I’m totally excited!!! In a few days, I’m off to Australiaaaaaaaa!!!!

It’s beaches, babes and lots of sightseeing dude!

or Mate! as they say ….

Oh, and yeah of course – I’ll be finishing up my IT degree as well.

And it was super easy, the college that I’m currently studying with – Amplify Mindware in Pune – has a study abroad programme where their students can opt to  finish their last year in QUT  (Queensland University of Technology) – all credits points transfer and once you’re done with your fourth semester – voila! you graduate with an International Bachelor’s degree  in IT.

Of course, you can stay on and opt for their Master’s programme as well – and yes, they do give their Bachelor students preference! Moreover, you can complete their Master’s degree in a reduced time period of one year only.

Imagine that.

Beaches, babes and an excellent IT course!

So a little more about my  University….

QUT has over 40,000 students, including nearly 5000 international students from more than 100 countries.

cool nah?!

What’s more – QUT ranks amongst top 3 Australian universities in the discipline of Information Technology.

So, dude, what are you waiting for – get going…. and you could be making Australia you’re next home…..!
