Student Profile


I studied the MSc in Applied Behaviour Analysis at Trinity and graduated in 2017. I found the experience extremely rewarding both with regards to the educational value and professional support I received during my studies. My professors, project supervisor and Course Director were all incredibly knowledgeable, pragmatic and supportive when providing advice and guidance. Their expertise, insight, understanding and professionalism shone through at all times. It’s a fantastic course and I’d recommend it to anyone interested in studying a practical and effective area of psychology of wide-ranging applications. It’s also currently a field in which trained professionals are in high demand so it’s also attractive from the standpoint that there is a viable and sustainable career open to graduates of ABA.

Generally speaking, I found the administration of Trinity easy to navigate and contact with regard to enquires, difficulties and problems I was having. I found their facilities were thorough, up to date and comprehensive, with links to the most modern and latest research databases. As a student I felt exceptionally welcome and well-catered for. There’s something for everybody on campus and it’s an exciting and bustling college to attend at the very heart of Dublin City. Logistics-wise, it’s easy to access as all modes transport are available for getting there.

Personally, I am now working full-time and I attribute this to a large degree to the MSc in ABA as the practical training and experience combined with the exceptional academic skill development throughout the course provided me with the ability to present myself in interviews as well as thrive in the workplace of my chosen field.
