Why you chose to study in DCU?

DCU was always my first choice. Being from Glasnevin DCU and all its campuses are very local to me and I always looked forward to being a student in DCU. The facilities are also amazing, DCU has such a wide variety of clubs and societies and all of the facilities that go along with them! 

One unique part about your course that you like

Many of the classes in my course is taught to us as though we are primary school students! We get to go back to primary school and do PE classes, art lessons, drama lessons, and more! I think this is probably the most unique part of my course compared to other courses in DCU!

Best thing about DCU experience so far

The best thing about my DCU experience so far has to be the friends I've made, ive been so lucky to meet so many ppl from my course, other courses and other years in DCU. I also love the opportunities that I have had to try new things and go back to old hobbies that I didn't have time for in secondary school.

Advice you would give to your younger self thinking of what to do/ where to go 

I definitely think that DCU was the right choice for me, I've always wanted to be a primary school teacher and this was always my top choice, but if I had to go back and choose another course I would definitely be choosing one from DCU!

Plans after DCU 

If I'm lucky I'll start teaching as soon as I've graduated!
