Why you chose to study in DCU?

I chose DCU because I really liked the atmosphere of the campus when I came to the Open Days. I also found they had the best media courses on offer, especially Communications. I also really liked the sound of their societies. 

One unique part about your course that you like

The varying type of modules means you can keep your options of employment sectors wide open. You get an idea of the different areas of media for the first 2 years and then you can specialize in 3rd year

Best thing about DCU experience so far

I have been so lucky to take full advantage of society life in DCU. I am a member of the Drama Society committee and an active member of the Media Production Society. I have had so many incredible experiences and have made friends for life through being part of these societies.

Plans after DCU 

I would love to get involved in radio, more so the production and research side of things. I have been so lucky to learn lots about this sector through MPS and my coursework.
