“Studying Geography at UCD has been such an incredible experience so far! All of my lecturers are prominent publishing researchers in their respective fields and the modules are designed to help grow your interdisciplinary knowledge of people, space and place. But my favourite is the interactive hands on learning. I’ve had several opportunities to work in the field alongside my lecturers both in Ireland and abroad which has given me an invaluable opportunity to grow my professional network.”
