The experience, from challenging and exciting modules to the people you meet along the way.

The sense of community. Within my class, there was always a sense of helping each other. This environment would push us all to get the most out of everything,

Along with the skills learnt specific to technology, skills such as communication, organisation and presentation were enhanced during my time at Maynooth University. Partaking in group projects, presentations to name but a few allowed me to become aware of everyday skills that help shape a career and, in fact, life.

I would strongly advise anyone who is considering this degree to pursue it. There will be some modules that will seem more challenging than others, but if you are prepared to ask for help when needed you will suceed. Things such as the Maths Support Center are a great place to perfect stuff that you struggle with. Throw yourself into any oportunities Maynooth gives (which are plentiful) and make the most out of your time here.
