Realist

Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

Science - DN200 NPF

A degree in science is for people who have a fascination with natural phenomena and a desire to find answers to their questions. Scientists have a natural curiosity, an ability to solve problems and a desire to explore new worlds.

The UCD Science DN200 programme offers 26 subjects categorised as follows:

  • Biological, Biomedical & Biomolecular Sciences (BBB)
  • Chemistry & Chemical Sciences (CCS)
  • Mathematical, Physical & Geological Sciences (MPG)
  • No Preference (NPF)

DN200 is not a “General Science” degree. It is an Honours degree course where students specialise in one of 26 subjects for their final degree. The NPF course is ideal if you’re undecided about which area of Science interests you most. Selecting ‘No Preference’ on your CAO form ensures flexibility to explore the range of science subjects.  –The No Preference option is also ideal if you’re interested in subjects across more than one stream, e.g. Chemistry and Chemical Sciences and Mathematical, Physical and Geological Sciences.
