Student Profile

Angela Locke-Reilly

Graduated in 2021

Having taken a career break to be a carer to my son I had not been in an educational setting in many years and was apprehensive about returning, especially to such a prestigious university. My experience at UCD was such a breath of fresh air. I felt that the delivery of the course material was so inclusive and accommodating that I instantly felt at home there. Every lecture was brim full of information that I now use professionally as an advocate with Inclusion Ireland.

It was such a privilege and a boon to my professional development to learn from such a diverse and experienced group of lecturers. I plan to return at every opportunity to learn more.
