Why did you choose to study in this college?

because I was interested in doing a business course in DCU

Are you happy with your choice of course?

Indifferent

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

Although I like my course, and enjoy the majority of the modules, I think that it should have been made much clearer how heavily based on economics it is, as I had never done economics before and was not aware how hard it would be.

How many hours of organised classes do you have per week?

16-20hrs

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

On

Is your course weighted more on continuous assessment or end of year exams?

End of year exams

Is there an option to study abroad on your course?

I don't know

What are your favourite aspects of your course?

I enjoy the IT parts and the Marketing modules.

Economics

Was your course what you expected?

No

What do you wish you had known before choosing this course?

I wish I had known exactly how much economics was involved in this course.

The library is well run and maintained, and the range of facilities are very good. However I think that it could be improved if there were more collaborative study rooms and more computers/printers.
