Trinity education not only provided me with the skills and techniques that I needed to be a successful researcher; but more importantly, it provided me with a much deeper humanistic experience that made me a confident and a compassionate human. I felt a connection to Trinity and decided to stay. I was elected to work for a year after graduation as Vice President of Trinity Graduate Students’ Union where I represented 4600+ postgraduates in Trinity. Following this, I worked in Google and then decided to return to Trinity. I am now pursuing my PhD in the Department of Psychology, which is something I had always wanted to do.
I choose Trinity as it is one of the most prestigious universities in Europe and Ireland. It creates a competitive environment for the student in terms of quality of work. My first impression of Trinity is how historical it is and that the buildings around campus are amazing.
The postgraduate programme in Trinity is academically challenging and rewarding, which has always encouraged the development of the brightest minds, as well as creativity, innovation, research and development of societal reforms. I also noticed that Trinity’s strategic plan focuses on developing interdisciplinary research of international significance, which is related to my area of interest. I hoped that I could compare the difference of mental health problems, nursing care and environments in various countries, especially at a well-known high quality educational university.
