The podcast series features interviews between DCU’s student ambassadors and Spin 103 broadcaster and recent DCU Communications graduate Leanne Hanafin.
The wide range of courses featured are from across DCU’s five faculties: DCU Institute of Education, the DCU Faculty of Science & Health, DCU Faculty of Computing & Engineering, DCU Business School, and the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.
The series features interviews with current DCU students from Business Studies, Accounting & Finance, Aviation Management, Business Studies International with Spanish, Business Studies Global German, Analytical Science, Science Education, PE with Maths, Psychology, Enterprise Computing, Early Childhood Education, International Relations, Economics, Politics and Law, and Communication Studies.
In the interviews, students explain why they chose DCU; what to expect year by year; what supports are in place if students are struggling to cope; the importance of work placements; exams and assessments; campus life outside of the course; and life after DCU.
