Anyone study this, or planning on studying it at Trinity College Dublin?

Even if not at this uni, what's the course like from a student's point of view? I'm thinking of applying here next year, when I'm in Year 13.

I'm interested in genetics at the moment but I like the look of this course because there seems to be a large variety of modules

If you have a range of interests it's best not to specialise yet. If you find the course interesting go for it!

I recently graduated from TCD after taking the Biological Sciences course and specialising in genetics. The first two years give you an excellent grounding in a wide variety of biological fields, with chemistry and maths. In third year you can take a broad curriculum module in a humanities subject if you want to spice up your timetable. I took a language course. The genetics department is excellent and if you do specialise in it, make sure your 2nd year exam results are excellent, as the department gives the top 2 incoming 3rd year genetics students a summer internship in Harvard or UPenn. (If you want free fees, accommodation, a stipend and free evening meals in the dining hall, get a first in the optional Schols exams over the Xmas break in your 2nd year!).

The student life in Trinity is incredible though. The societies at Trinity are better than any I've ever come across, even here at Oxford, nothing compares to Players, The Phil, The Hist, LitSoc, etc. The sports clubs are excellent too, some (DU Boat/DU Ladies' Boat, DU Fencing) are vastly better than other university teams in the country. And there's an awful lot to be said about being located in the heart of Dublin City centre! There's always something to do.

Wow that does sound great
Are you taking a Masters now? Planning on doing a PhD?
The whole course sounds amazing, I'd love to be able to take a language as well; thanks for that info!

Yeah, I’m doing a masters at the moment. I’m considering doing a PhD, but I’m still undecided on where I’ll do it. Good luck!
