Student Profile

Dr. Brendan Dunford, Manager, Burren Programme

Having spent my twenties travelling around the world, I’d become increasingly interested in the relationship between people and their places, how communities shape their local environments and vice-versa, and what a precious resource a healthy environment is. I decided that I wanted to learn more and reconnect again with my own homeplace, so I returned to Ireland, ‘parked’ the backpack and enrolled in the MSc Environmental Resource Management at UCD. I loved it!
The mix of people in terms of age, academic background and nationality, the diversity of subjects available, the passion for learning and change among my new classmates, all made for a very inspiring experience. Having the course located within the UCD School of Agriculture and Food Science was a bonus as so much of the Irish landscape is shaped by farming and so much change has taken place in that sector of late.
