Students from the My Uni Life Documentary

My Uni Life Documentary Series

In “My Uni Life” we meet 7 students at various stages of their university journey who all share one common experience: getting to and through university despite personal challenges. They represent just 7 out of thousands of students each year whose desire for third level education is facilitated and supported by the Access and Disability programmes run by IUA Universities.  Their stories are positive and uplifting.

Filmed by New Decade throughout 2020, an unprecedented year for Irish universities and the educational system, this series provides a unique and emotional window into the lives of our young, and not-so-young students, as they grapple with remote learning, zoom lectures, exam and course confusion, and the bizarre new-normal of online graduations during a global pandemic.

This five-part documentary series tells the life stories of this diverse range of students and looks at the positives, negatives, challenges and frustrations on the ground reflecting the living, breathing reality of life for those from under-represented groups.  We will witness a year like no other for our class of 2020 as they give us a glimpse of their Uni life.
