There's 28 in my class, although we are always mixed in with other classes such as the Bsc. Psychology class, Law Plus, Arts, Economics and Sociology etc.

I have 5 modules - Psychology and Everyday Life, Theory and Method 1, Practical Psychology 1, Introduction to Sociology 1 and Introduction to Social Research Methods. I know 3 of these modules continue after the holidays, not sure about the rest, sorry.

I only have 14 hours in a regular week, although it changes from time to time with different things.

The workload isn't too bad. As I said I don't have many hours, but there is quite a lot of independent research to be done, which is difficult enough at the start but you get used to it.

If anyone wants me to go into more detail about the course, subjects, modules, workload, university etc I'd be more than happy too.
I know I knew very little about this course when I begun, and how different it was to how I imagined, so I know how valuable this info could be.
How do you find the Sociology? I've researched this course a fair bit and while I think I've got a pretty good grip on what Psych will be like, I reckon Sociology will be completely different to what I'm imagining.
How do you think the course measures up against the single Psych course? I'm a bit wary that the points are lower, seeing as most courses with two subjects are usually much higher points-wise.

I know there is plenty in here about arts courses but thought I might post my own experience here.

Course: UCD Arts - Maths, Irish, Economics

Maths
So far I'm loving maths in UCD. I think it's taught really well and the lecturers are really helpful. I find it challenging but if you work at it then you should be okay. We've tutorials (which are like small classes) and the tutors really help you out . You can take 4 modules in maths in first year. There is a maths support centre too if you need help with anything.

Irish
I did 2 modules in irish. I really liked irish in college. I thought the way they taught it was great. In my modules, I had 2 grammar classes and 1 oral class a week. And if you're not too confident in irish but have an interest there is a module called Bunchloch na Gaeilge to build up your standard of irish. There are plenty of different modules on offer like heritage etc so there's something for everyone.

Economics
I find it a lot different from LC economics. Its all just lectures so you have to do a lot of work on your own but it is easy to find videos and info on all your topics There is an economics support centre if you're finding anything difficult.

Hours:
Hours aren't too much or too little really I had 19 last semester and 14 this semester

Number of people:
There are 120 in maths which isn't too much tbh And you'll make friends really easy There are 800 or more in economics because commerce students are in our lectures too. I find it challenging enough to make friends but just mingle a lot in the first few weeks and you'll be grand. There are a lot of people doing irish but the classes are small with no more than 20 people in a class

Additional comments:
Okay I just have a few things to say about my course and arts in general.
  • Arts isn't as easy as everyone makes out. It is a lot of work and is as hard as any course. Don't believe that it's useless cause it's not, an Arts degree is a good degree to have if you use it well. Just take it seriously.
  • Arts wasn't my first choice and even though it wasn't I still loved it so I'm just saying this in case somebody sees this post after offers and is sad about getting arts. I'm having a great time in college and most importantly I love my course and I'm so happy I got it

UCD:
UCD is really really big but dont let that scare you I find that I recognise the same faces after a few weeks and I make new friends everyday There is plenty of facilities on campus and I'm never bored there. I find UCD is really supportive and give you loads of information.

PM if you want more info about anything Hope this helped

Hi, Iv applied for this course and was wondering what you thought of it.
How difficult was it?, and how many hours a week did you have to put in, Thanks

Hi, just wondering if anybody is doing Theoretical Physics in UCD and could give me an insight into how much maths is involved.

Little bit of info: I'm probably only a B maths student at the moment and I'm doing Applied Maths and honestly I'm struggling but I'm hoping to get on top of it.

I have a keen interest in quantum mechanics and the like and was hoping if somebody could delve into the course a bit and tell me what aspects of quantum mechanics it covers.

Also if anybody is doing it in TCD I'm interested but I visited TCD and honestly didn't have one positive thing to say about it just couldn't see myself studying there.

Anyway, I'm rambling now anybody with info PLEASE PM me, thank you!

Hey guys. Bit of a silly question but suppose you take a language with your Arts course, do you only have to specialise in the year abroad study if you carry that subject on for the 4 years?
