Shannon Lewis, Canada,Graduate
I chose to pursue my graduate education at UCD because it is one of the top universities in Ireland. Naturally, as a prospective history student I was drawn to Ireland because of the rich culture and long-standing history it has to offer. The MA in Medieval Studies offers modules in a wide variety of subjects within the confines of the medieval period, and as an interdisciplinary programme also allows students to branch out of the history department, giving me a truly unique and well-rounded learning experience. UCD is a modern university with hi-tech facilities and outstanding resources, yet the campus can only be described as a spacious green oasis hidden away from the hustle and bustle of city life, which I especially liked. The friendly and engaging university atmosphere makes it easy to feel part of the school community. It is a University that truly cares about its students and wants them to get the most out of their degree.
Krystal Carmichael, from Maine, USA, currently doing a PhD at UCD:
I knew very little about UCD before applying for a masters. What drew me here was the Medieval Studies MA, especially the interdisciplinary nature of the program. This gave me the opportunity to pick and choose modules according to my own interests, in subjects such as art history, palaeography, languages, and of course history. Having this all-around approach allowed me to develop a better understand of the Middle Ages, as well as providing essential skills for future research. On top of the academic advantages of this masters, I fully enjoyed the atmosphere and friendliness of everyone at UCD as a whole, but especially within the School of History, so much so that I decided to stay at UCD to complete a PhD.
