    Amazing opportunities

    UCD is a wonderful university. It has a state of the art science building, and many sporting facilities, catering to many different sports. It has a huge campus with a variety of courses. The opportunities offered by UCD to its student are also endless, from a year abroad to placements and internships. However, it does have a large Dublin based student population, resulting in student life revolving mostly around lecture times and it is noticeably quieter during the weekends and at night. It is also not in the centre of Dublin and public transport is therefore needed to go anywhere.

    with Data Science
    Would gladly go to UCD again

    I am studying Computer Science course at UCD and I can say that I am pretty happy with the environment and the atmosphere here. Good portion of our lectures were in the O’Brien Science Centre which is one of the newest and most modern buildings on campus. The course itself is quite demanding but doable, it gets harder and harder as it progresses towards the last year. Anyway, you get used to it, so the highest drop out rate was in first year and then way lower in the consecutive years. Campus is full of students and can be wonderful to stick around when its sunny and warm. Sport facilities are good as well, the swimming pool is one of the best I’ve ever used, I also used to do rowing in previous years. Generally sports clubs are very good, the only thing I’m not happy about entirely are the student societies, as although there is many of them, good number of them are not really active, so you’ll have to put some effort to find your thing aside from studies.
    There are loads of international students, which is very nice to see and also to be able to meet different cultures. Accommodation on campus is quite pricey, so you may get it in first year, but then most people move away to cheaper sharing options in later years.

  • Business Management
    Would recommend

    I spent a year studying for an MSc in Management in UCD Smurfit School. I thoroughly enjoyed my time studying there and would definitely recommend it to anyone considering pursuing either under or post-graduate education in Dublin. The university has a large student population and plenty of societies for students to join. The only downside is that it is located outside the city centre and the only way to get there using public transport is by bus.

  • Fantastic University but very large

    I loved it in UCD but it can be easy to seem anonymous in the university because it’s very big. I recommend anyone starting to get involved with a tight-knit society when they first start attending! There was a high quality of teaching but there was understaffing at times around practical classes and aspects of medically orientated courses.

  • Agricultural Science
    My four years

    I studied here for four years doing ag science. I found the university really friendly. There are loads of opportunities in the college and top-class facilities. It’s full of different cultures and a great opportunity to merry properly from all over the world. The accommodation and parking on campus aren’t great.
