What the students say

I discovered new aspects of my personality and made things that were weaknesses to me (interpersonal skills, language, etc) into strengths by putting an effort - I think I'm a different person now (hopefully better!) so I would say that was a good choice.

I would recommend Trinity to a friend by saying that it is a beautiful campus which provides many intellectual, academic and social opportunities. There is a great mix of people and great opportunities for making friends. Because it is a smaller university than UCD for example classes are smaller which allows for making friends and getting to know people. The size of the student population makes everything accessible, it is big enough that there is a huge range of choice in terms of subjects and activities but it is not so huge that you are completely lost or not counted for. There is a friendly atmosphere around campus and really anything goes in terms of culture, style, background.

Well, I wasn't able to give my full course, which is English Literature/Mathematics TSM; which, as I've been told several times throughout the year, is a very unusual combination. I picked my course because I really didn't want to choose a career and commit myself to it at eighteen years of age, and these were the two subjects that I was most passionate about in school. I decided that it would be far more advantageous to me to study something that I actually enjoyed, ignoring the long term career view for the moment, because I was certain that tearing my hair out over deciding between solicitor or accountant or teacher at this stage of my life would have placed a lot of unnecessary stress on me.
