UCD School of Sociology is Ireland's leading centre for education and research in sociology.
My advice to potential students and researchers is ‘it’s never too late to start’ your adventure in third level education! I began my studies for a degree in Social Science in my mid-forties and I could never have imagined that it would be the first step in an incredible journey in education. Culminating in the pursuit of a research PhD in Sociology, examining the importance of the role of fathers in contemporary Ireland. I was also actively encouraged and supported by the school to apply for a post-graduate scholarship from the Irish Research Council and I was awarded this valuable scholarship.
