Applied Social Care Graduate - Maria McGolderick

Maria McGolderick

GMIT Mayo Campus has been a wonderful experience. The small size of the campus makes it easy to get to know everyone and there is a real sense of community. Lecturers are very approachable and do their utmost to accommodate student needs. I have made many lifelong friends along the way.

The Applied Social Studies degree is a very diverse and dynamic programme. The wide variety of subjects offered not only broadens
employment prospects but also broadens your way of thinking in everyday life. It is a life changing degree.

I cannot stress the importance of taking time out from both academic and personal life stresses. GMIT Mayo Campus have a great range of sports clubs, societies and a fantastic fit to work programme, which are not only great fun, but are a great way to take a break and rejuvenate. There are also a number of student support services available on the campus which can assist you with any challenges that you may face during your academic life. My advice to any of you contemplating undertaking a degree here at GMIT Mayo campus is to go for it.
