Coming to study for a PhD at Maynooth was probably one of the best choices that I have ever made. The experience was truly exceptional.
I have found there everything that I needed to be able to successfully complete my thesis and grow professionally as well as personally. I gained immensely from a close cooperation with my supervisor who is a leading researcher in the field of social movements; studied in a friendly and intellectually stimulating environment and was part of a vibrant and extremely supportive department.
I particularly liked the freedom to pursue engaged research in ways that strive to make it relevant to real struggles and people.
