Global Health is an attempt to address health problems and issues that transcend national boundaries, and are informed by the circumstances and experiences of countries in differing contexts. The underlying assumption is that the world's health problems are shared and are best tackled by cooperative action and the sharing of innovative solutions.

MSc Digital Marketing Strategy

This is probably the best Master's course for Digital Marketing Strategy in the world and I'll tell you why.

In the business world, companies don't really care about your degree. They care about your work experience, and this course gives you the experience you need to get a job. You will do real client work with real client money, and you'll be driving real-world results. So when you go to apply for a job, you can say you already have experience. That is much better than reading textbooks and taking exams!

Also, digital marketing is constantly evolving, so you need to learn from people who are working in the field right now. All of TCD's professors are active in the field, and the guest lecturers will come from industry leaders like Hubspot, Google, LinkedIn etc.

If you want to work in tech, Dublin is probably the biggest tech scene in Europe right now. Many colleagues went to work at the big tech companies like Salesforce, Oracle, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google. Many others went to work in digital agencies around the world.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
You get out what you put into the course. If you sit back and do the bare minimum, you probably won't learn that much. But if you do extra studying on your free time, do good work for your clients, and use TCD's network to your advantage, you will get a ton from this course. I wouldn't be where I am without my experience at TCD. If I had to choose again, I'd still choose this course over an old-fashioned MS in Marketing. In my opinion, real-world experience is always better than reading textbooks and taking exams.

Great Business School

Trinity College Dublin is located right in the heart of a vibrant European capital city. Even better, the Business School is housed in a new, zero-carbon building on the centuries-old campus (TCD was founded in 1592!)
All of this is within 10 minutes walk of what’s become known as Dublin’s “Silicon Docks”, the European headquarters for Google, Facebook, LinkedIn and a whole host of other tech giants.
Really, this unique, very-old-meets-very-new combination makes TCD a fantastic place to study for a postgraduate business degree.

A great place to do a PhD

A rich academic environment in the nicest country. I got to work with world-leading researchers on exciting questions. Like any PhD, it was a lot of hard work and required a 4 year time commitment. Irish PhD programs don't have as many requirements for coursework as their American counterparts, which can be really nice. Most science PhDs are expected to either secure their own funding though grants or to self-fund their work. TCD provides a great jumping point to other European institutions and to UK institutions as well.

Masters in Marketing from Trinity College Dublin

My year studying at Trinity College Dublin in the MSc for Marketing was the best decision I could have made in my learning career! I was taught by world class professionals, made friends for life and have brought experiences from the classroom into the real world where I am employed (less than 3 months after graduation) in a Digital Marketing role. I really found that the program was a positive addition to my resume as well as my academic career. I would recommend this program to anyone with a zest for adventure who is looking to improve themselves!

What was your funniest moment?
I really enjoyed getting to know the other students through the social events which our class officers coordinated. It was great to make international friends!

The best time of my life and (occasionally the most stressful)

Attending Trinity College was the highest privilege of my lifetime. I am proud every day that I went here. I was used to American college where everything stuck to schedules and never changed, plus you always knew when tests were. This is not the case here. But if you are adaptable, the staff is always willing to help you out. The disorganization was hard to get used to, but I still recommend going here regardless for the academics and prestige. If you are a hard worker and can self organize, then this is definitely the place for you. Going here and doing the digital marketing masters has opened up a lot of doors for me.

What would you improve about this program?
Try to make a schedule before the year and stick to it
