Student Experiences


“While attending Kinsale College I completed courses in Office Administration & Computer Skills and the Advanced Certificate in Business Management. The relaxed learning environment and support of lecturers contributed towards a very positive experience. On completion of the courses there were numerous further educational opportunities available through the CAO, College Links System and by Direct Application to Third Level Institutes. I found the courses covered a wide range of subjects and gave me a great understanding and foundation to progress to third level education in Business Studies in CIT.”
