It’s your future. Master it. - UCD Masters 2018/2019

UCD has launched its Masters campaign for 2018/2019. The messaging for this campaign comes from the new UCD communications platform which is drawn from UCD’s Founding Rector John Henry Newman’s ambition for “true enlargement of mind”. We invite and challenge our students, and all involved at UCD to think bigger, go further, learn more and to go beyond expectations. UCD is Ireland’s No. 1 university for Graduate Studies and is No. 1 in Ireland for Graduate Employability.
