I was fortunate to receive a full scholarship to study for my Masters in Ireland. I chose to study at DCU, as it has a great reputation for engineering professionals. After I completed the course, I felt like I evolved professionally and personally, and that this course had done a great job of preparing me for my engineering career.

DCU has a reputation for providing the highest quality education. The courses and modules are designed to match the current dynamics of the world. The MSc in Management (Strategy) had interesting modules designed so an individual comes out as a business professional. And the course is ranked in the top five management courses in Europe.
Furthermore, when applying to DCU, I talked to a lot of alumni through LinkedIn and all of them had positive thoughts about DCU. They mentioned how the international office is so helpful. DCU has great activities all year round and also an amazing campus with an extraordinary library. All these aspects made me choose DCU for my studies and that was by far the best decision I have made.

“Studying at DCU gave me a lot of opportunities and played a huge role in what I have become today. I had an opportunity to intern with the United Nations as part of my programme: that was a remarkable experience for me.
“I also got the inspiration to start up my NGO (the African Rural Community Development Initiative) after taking a course in politics and development in Africa, it inspired me to want to do more for my community. I thank my lecturers and DCU’s international community for the wonderful experience.”
