    Ireland is a very peaceful and beautiful country .Maynooth University is the best university in Ireland for climate research and hence was the ideal choice for me as I wanted a career in climate sciences and was hoping to undertake a master's abroad. This course ,which I am currently pursuing, M.Sc in climate change is offered by ICARUS (Irish climate analysis and research units) which is a forerunner in climate research in Ireland .The professors teaching us are leading scientists, some of them being lead authors in the intergovernmental panel on climate change (IPCC).What I mostly liked about my course is that it is more learning based .The modules are a blend of science, policies, statistics and data analysis, thus it is interdisciplinary. This is the most attractive feature of the course. Maynooth University has the highest student satisfaction rates and the best international office with a thriving international student community and last but not the least the campus is breathtaking !

    Course Curriculum :

    The course curriculum is excellent. These are the list of modules: 1)Applied climate science. 2)Impacts, Adaptation and mitigation. 3)Spatial and temporal analysis using R. 4)Detection and attribution of climate change. 5)The ocean and climate change 6)4 Field courses. 7)Thesis The evaluation is continuous evaluation where we have to write scientific papers and essays ,so is it imperative that we are up-to date ,that is one of the foremost objectives of this course. All the assignments are real world problems which we had to tackle with our own ideas. This course itself prepares the students for carrying out independent research. Internships and industrial exposure are available and is for the student to undertake at their own convenience.

    I chose to study at Maynooth University because it is ranked in top 50 young universities in the world. Another reason for me to take admission here was because of the short batch sizes and the cost of education. Education in USA/UK would have been on a high end and thus, Ireland was another English speaking country where I wanted to pursue my education. Therefore I paid €50 for the application fee to kickstart the process.

    Course Curriculum :

    I feel the curriculum and the structure of the course is designed to create a great foundation in the management of organisations, as well as in financial analysis and the measurement of performance. I feel that being a part of diverse set of international students, I have developed an excellent set of technical accounting skills with the practical implementation of seminars and group discussions
