Why did you choose your course?

It was something I’ve wanted to do for years and I always thought of it as a course you can travel with after graduating.

Are you happy with your choice of course?

Yes

On reflection, what made it the right or wrong choice for you?

It was everything I expected, if not more in some areas. The fact that it is a people orientated course suits me perfectly.

How many hours of organised classes do you have per week? (labs,tutorials,lectures,etc)

21-25hrs

Are your lectures/labs mainly based on or off the main campus?

Off

If off campus, does this affect you and how?

Not particularly as the hospital where they're held is a short walking distance to me.

Is your course weighted more on

End of year exams

Is there an option to study abroad on your course?

No

What are your favourite aspects of your course?

It’s people orientated, the placement is tough but I love it.

What are your least favourite aspects of your course?

There’s an awful lot of material to cover in a short space of time.

Was your course what you expected?

Yes

Rate your course in terms of difficulty

Difficult

Please rate your course in terms of workload

More than other courses

Are you an active member of any societies?

No

Are you a member of any sports clubs?

No

Would you recommend getting involved in college sport?

Yes

Why?

It allows others who are shy or new to college to get to know people in different courses, socialise with them and get involved in something they enjoy.

How much do you spend on living every week (going out, food, transport etc.), excluding rent and bills?

€140-160

How much does your rent cost per month?

€350-450

As a first year did you live in college halls?

Yes

Would you recommend living in college halls?

Yes,Loved the experience. I was on my own when I moved up in 1st yr. living with a group of girls in a similar situation allowed me to make friends with them and others. The socialness of halls allowed us then to make friends with other nationalities, background, courses etc.

If yes, where and why?

I always state that I loved the 2 years I lived in Rathmines, so close to college, a genuinely nice area to live, although expensive it's be worth it. Wasn’t ideal for placement however.
