I took up UCD degree on company sponsorship and completed the programme successfully within 18 months. The duration of 18 months is reasonable for a part-time student like me. For UCD programme, the classes are very flexible and I do not have to commit weekly classes which will be disruptive to my work and family life.

I decided to take up a UCD programme because of the duration. My friends and colleagues who took the same UCD programme highly recommended it to me.

The flexible class schedule was very suitable to part-time students like me. I was able to graduate successfully from my degree programme while managing my family and work commitments. Upon completing the UCD degree, I was promoted to become a team lead and at the same time, received a pay increment. This is indeed one of the best choices I have made in my life.

I wanted to study in a school that was reputable and had the necessary accreditations, and UCD fits both criteria.
