The subject, Psychology was the correct choice for me. However I am not too sure about the University. My only other options were DCU, Maynooth or Trinity.DCU and Maynooth would be a bit too far to commute everyday and I did not bother putting down Trinity as I felt I wouldn't achieve the points (Big Mistake). In the end I could have gone to Trinity, where their Psychology course is much more in Depth and focused. In UCD at the moment I am only doing one third of my classes in Psychology, and the other two thirds on other general arts subjects such as sociology, history etc... As well as not doing pure psychology from first year, UCD also differs as it is a 3 year course, whereas the other courses in the previously mentioned colleges are 4 years. In short, I am doing 2 years of pure Psychology to get the same degree as other colleges, where they do 4 years. However from a social aspect, UCD is much better and I would prefer this to 4 years of a relatively worse social life.
