Theerada Somanand - Structured PhD

Theerada Somanand

"I have signed up for the Structured PhD Programme at the Centre for Disability Law and Policy. I chose to study here because of the specialised programme and expertise of academic staff in disability law. Before I came here, I knew very little about Ireland. Presently, I am very happy with my choice and enjoy my stay. Besides the study-friendly and safe environment of Galway, the University also provides a wide selection of facilities, support and extra-curricular activities, which gives me tremendous experience and meaningful study life. Studying here also gives me a great opportunity to grow my network worldwide.

Irish culture in 3 words: craic, music, friendly
Galway in 3 words: safe, diversity, peaceful"
