TU Dublin's internship placement is the university's most unique feature as it allows students to enter the Irish workforce by gaining real world experience
My experience in TU Dublin even during the global pandemic provided me with so much knowledge, self-confidence, friends, and work opportunities. TU Dublin really prepared me for my future career through great lecturers, real industry experiences, and an internship opportunity.
The amount of support given from staff and lecturers in TU Dublin was tremendous. With the positive, open culture flowing in the campus, it makes blending in the college environment so much easier, especially for international students like myself.
From likeminded Digital Marketing enthusiast classmates, lecturers with real industry experiences to guest lectures from industry experts, this has been an amazing and intense learning journey so far. This is particularly great as I am an entrepreneur myself; my company grows together with me while I am in TU Dublin.
