Fiona is a graduate of Law and German in Trinity College Dublin. She one of many who received an autism diagnosis adulthood while studying in Trinity. She now works in the field of language and also works as a stand-up comedian. I interviewed her about her journey from education to employment.
It’s hard to know what college – or third level education as it is sometimes called – is like until you get there, and all colleges or universities are different.

We aim to give you a realistic view, based on things students told us they wish they had known.
