Aisling Rose - "There is an abundance of nice things I would love to express about my time at Cavan Institute. For me, it will remain one of the most beneficial, enlightening and rewarding years of my life.
My course enabled me to gain a range of invaluable skills and a fountain of knowledge going forward on my educational journey. The Cultural and Heritage Studies course meant that a multitude of possibilities was opened to me, and I had the brilliant opportunity to learn about the origins and historical background of my home town, delve into and discover how important it is to preserve and protect Irish Heritage and all that it encompasses. I enhanced my French-speaking skills and so much more. The year also rewarded me with being able to acquire practical skills and learn how to incorporate referencing into my assignments.
Completing assignments within the time constraints given did supply some stress I will admit, but with the ever-accommodating tutors there to support and guide you, and some self-belief and determination, achieving a high standard of work is possible. The tutors will go above and beyond and answer any queries you may have. I am truly glad that I went to Cavan Institute, and for anyone unsure about whether or not to pursue to a university course, Cavan Institute offers so many courses that will not only gain you a recognised educational achievement but allow many people to have their dreams of moving forward in their pursuit of education manifested into a reality.
Anyone who studies the Cultural and Heritage Studies course will not regret it and I can testify to that. I will now be attending DCU for the 2019/2020 academic year, studying International Relations. My experience would not have been the same, if it had not been for some of the overly accommodating, compassionate and helpful tutors, including Patrick Cassidy and Margaret Tiernan among others. I will never forget what they did for me, nor the time I spent there."
