    Got offered a Masters in Accountancy from various colleges , Have picked DIT to study their Msc Accounting course. Can't wait to get going :-)

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,398 ✭✭✭dfbemt

    Thrilled that I've finally obtained my MA from a UK university. Said that was the end of it when my dissertation went in in April but finding myself drawn to further study. Phd is next step really but can I really cut it?

    Won't do anything until I sort out a study area at home. I didn't do myself any favours working off the kitchen table or going up to the DCU library for some quiet time, not.

    Drawn to DCU for Phd, subject to funding of course.

    I started a second masters last year a MSc in Bereavement Studies with the Royal College of Surgeons, but I had to defer after the first module as I became ill. I started again this year, but on my first day I was diagnosed as having a DVT, so far I haven't missed any classes and I don't plan on deferring againg this year. I'll just have to work through the pain.

    Doing a Masters by Research (as Gaeilge) with Fiontar in DCU.

    Started in January of this year and, while the whole research process has its challenges, I find the topic interesting and plan to finish by June 2012.

    Whoop, I got my masters in bioinformatics in December and it seems to have landed me a job with the college as a research assistant for the next few months. If I can get a job out of education, there's hope for everyone! \o/

    Hey guys! Just started my MBA a few weeks ago. Have gone abroad to do it as I got a scholarship, so completing it in Memorial University of Newfoundland.

    Its taken me the few weeks to get back into the swing of studying so things have piled up a little but starting to get them under control :) Love the course so far, finding my classes a lot more interesting, topical and practical than my undergrad.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,241 ✭✭✭barleybooley

    I'm just coming to the end of the PgDip part of the masters I'm doing (Pharma QA and Biotech in DIT) and instead of doing the 6 month dissertation placement, I'm starting a PhD at the end of May. I think I may never leave college...
