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.

I got an admission at UCD in digital information management. This year has been a combination of study and fun for me. The experience I am receiving during my master is impeccable. And now after spending 9 months in Dublin has made me realize this is by far the best decision of my life.

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.

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.

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.

I have thouroughly enjoyed my time studying at UCD. The large campus, incredible facilities and endless opportunities to develop both academically and personally have contributed to two of the best years of my life so far. There is a wide range of courses and modules all led by passionate faculty staff. The business school was recently expanded and now includes state of the art meeting hubs and interactive classrooms. UCD also has a huge variety of clubs and societies ranging from lacrosse to film and even juggling! Events are constantly taking place on campus so there is no issue with meeting and integrating into college life. I am excited for the next two years I will spend as a student at UCD. The opportunities offered are countless due to their global partners and reach. I would highly recommend the university to anyone seeking an enjoyable, full college experience that will push you to excel in all aspects; academically, socially and personally.

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.
