Emma from China found a job in Ireland after her degree at UCD.

‘Before I came to Ireland I was not this confident. I was pretty uncertain about my future and I didn’t know where I was going. Now I’ve found a job in Ireland, I know what I’m going to do in the future. Dublin and especially UCD and ISC study definitely changed my life. It made me a better person.’

Emma studied International Foundation Year in Business, Economics and Social Sciences. She graduated with a BComm Commerce, and is now working at Smith Education in Dublin.
