Why did you choose to study in this college?

The EBG course is part of my international studies organized by the ESB Reutlingen and the DCU. I did not have any influence on the choice of the course, but I could have chosen a completely other programme at a German university. The reason I picked the European Business module is simply that I will definitely work in Europe later and a course covering the whole european business is an excellent preparation.

Are you happy with your choice of course?

Yes

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

There is nothing I have done wrong. I am pretty happy with the choice of my course.

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

11-15hrs

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?

Yes

If you studied abroad, is there any advice you would give someone looking to study abroad?

I started studying in Ireland and will go to Germany for the second half of my period. But since Ireland is my foreign university, I can only advise all other students to go abroad to get to know another culture and meet many different people from all over the Europe (or even the world)

What are your favourite aspects of your course?

The mixed modules - they are well balanced concerning the "topic specific" knowledge as well as completing modules on "Irish topics"

That there are some 100% exams in the end. Personally I prefer at least 50% for CA.
