I participated in the MSc Horticulture at UCD as a joint programme between Yangzhou University (YZU) and UCD and am very glad I did. UCD is a very reputable college in Ireland. The people are very friendly and the campus is fantastic. The course has a wide range of subjects and several practical courses. I found the tutorials offered by the UCD School of Agriculture and Food Science College benefited me a lot.
In UCD, you can join many communities and activities to make friends. The students are really nice. From the Pre- Master course, we learned the skill of essay writing with the support of teachers. UCD is a perfect place to study and carry out research.
