Fantastic uni experience!

I'm so glad I chose the University of York to pursue my undergrad degree as I've had an absolutely terrific experience. What I love best about the university is the college system- it gives you a chance to be a part of your own little community outside of your degree. The incredible support available at the university and the range of opportunities available outside of my degree, from societies to volunteering to work experience have played a big part in my university experience.

Good balance of academics and extracurricular

The university is world class, with very good lecturers. It also encourages involvement in societies with over 200 societies available and a chance to make your own. The university cares a lot about the wellbeing of the students as well.

Definitely recommend!

I really enjoyed my time in UCD. The connections I made and reach I have through the alumni network is invaluable as is the learning I took from studies. I absolutely recommend UCD as the best (and first) choice for anyone looking to study in Ireland and set themselves apart from the herd!!!

From a returning International Student.

I did my undergraduate degree at Carleton University in Communications and media studies. As an international student, I will admit I felt lonely for a month in first year. However, Carleton is set up so that you are not alone for too long. I found other like minded (and sometimes different) people through clubs, faith groups, international hangouts and academic circles. Carleton was the first place to make me, an international student feel like I was on a level playing field with citizens and it offered me my first "real" job. Currently, I am in my Masters in Communications, working as a teaching assistant and a part-time student fundraiser and I am thinking, I may stick around a bit longer even after my degree :).

Great University!

I've had a great experience as a postgraduate student at the University of York. It is not only a great place to study, but also a great place to live and experience the UK. I have been able to meet other students that come from all around the world, so studying here has not only helped me to grow academically, but has also been a great social experience. I love York, I would definitely recommend choosing it as your future university.

Integrity of the university is strong

The integrity of the University, its courses and teaching is strong in my experience. Professors are truly interested in connecting with students to share their lifelong passions and to persuade students to dedicate themselves to these disciplines as well. The library is a great study space, but Biology has its own study area, which is also a nice alternative study space. I am involved in Yoga Society which is a great reflective and flexible way for exercising. All my expectations for University have been met at York, where I met lots of diverse people who have shaped me and enriched my experience and life.

Great experience

I think the University of York has been extremely well suited to my needs as a postgraduate student. My Department and the community it creates has been the best part of my experience. The Department is young and vibrant and very willing to help out all of their students, the Humanities Research Centre is an amazing space for humanities postgrads and the city itself is a great place to live and study. They have so many societies to join, and the Graduate Students Association provides activities for postgrads. 
Funding has been the biggest obstacle - I was only aware of one type of scholarship, which I was not awarded, although they have a few more options now for international students. Nevertheless, funding is limited and competitive, so that is something to keep in mind when applying, particularly if you would rely on outside funding.

Having a lovely time so far

I've only just finished my first year but I'm loving my university experience so far. I've gotten the opportunity to get involved in so many volunteering activities on campus as well as clubs and societies, stuff that has definitely boosted my CV. The campus is absolutely lovely and I've managed to make many friends during my time here thus far, despite my initial homesickness and anxieties about coming to university. The staff in my department are also very helpful and friendly and they've been very willing to help us in any way they can. The university has a great support system and a vibrant and active student environment, so you definitely won't regret applying and coming here to further your studies.

UL- An excellent environment learning

At the University of Limerick, I was exposed to new life perspectives and broad range of valuable experiences. The blend of Irish culture and learning supported with a well-stocked library, well-equipped study spaces, modern sports arena and other state-of-the-art facilities are all fashioned in a way that assures qualitative production of high performing graduates that can keep pace with rapidly growing world. 
UL also has an open interface that ensures students and lecturers interact regularly and informally for academic advice and exchange of ideas. Within short span of time, I made great friends with both students and staff and really enjoyed the lively atmosphere around the campus.
