Graduate Officer Conor Anderson
My name is Conor Anderson, and I am the Graduate Officer for UCDSU. I completed my undergraduate degree in Los Angeles, then moved to Dublin to get my master's in archaeology here at UCD.
My advice to new graduate students is to get involved, early! Make connections with your fellow students and establish yourself in some kind of society or community; you won't have the time once your degree really gets underway. I am here to help you do that by organising events and providing resources. I am also here to act as an advocate if you come up against a roadblock in your education, whether that be conflict with a supervisor, access issues, or the need to appeal an academic result. If you want to get involved with the Union and help to make this university a better place for students, I am happy to facilitate that as well!
