What Our Alumni Say

My experience with the Professional Diploma in Project Management was extremely good - since completing the course I now have interviews coming out of my ears! I picked up a lot of useful skills throughout the course and everything was very well-taught by the lecturers.

Barry Cunningham


I found the Certificate in Data Analytics for Finance to be both challenging and informative. Learning how to use Python was one of the biggest benefits of the course, given that it’s a glue coding language and can be applied elsewhere. The course - alongside my existing experience - will be such a stepping stone into a career in Data Analytics.

Studying for a Professional Diploma has helped to reinvigorate me as I seek a new leadership role. It afforded me the opportunity to consider insights shared by the lecturer and classmates and to review some of the academic literature which tends to get ignored in the BUSY day to day.

The experience I had has been nothing but positive. When the course went from in classes, in UCD, to online lectures, this worked well with my busy schedule. I would definitely recommend UCD Professional Academy.

Ivan Cunnane


An Garda Síochána, An Garda Síochána / Laois/Offaly division

I would definitely 100% recommend UCD Professional Academy to anyone. Everything was so organised and it was such an enjoyable experience. The only regret I have is not learning about the UCD Professional Academy sooner and completing the course sooner.
