Although this blog may not directly relate to every discipline, the same pointers can be applied to choosing modules for the coming year. It is important to choose subjects/ modules that you enjoy. There is no point in taking a topic you are not interested in as it makes it harder to carry out assignments and projects. Below are several pointers from my mentors. Enjoy :)  

Keep an open mind and attend as many lectures as you can, even if you don't initially think you'd like to carry that particular module on to next year. Courses may surprise you!

The transition between secondary school and third level can be quite daunting.
