Dundalk Institute of Technology, Business Studies
Brianna from Rockcorry, Co Monaghan attended St Louis Secondary School, Carrickmacross and progressed to Cavan Institute to undertake and complete QQI Level 5 Business Studies course in May 2019.
"I choose to study this course as I had just completed my leaving certificate and I was very unsure about what career path I wanted to take before heading to a University.
The Business Studies course was very educational and highly beneficial. Throughout the year, I studied 10 different modules, work experience being mandatory. The tutors were very helpful and were always there to guide and support the students.
This course gave me great practical skills and really boosted my confidence while completing presentations and submitting class assignments.
The highlight of the year for me would be the Erasmus Trip in which I got the opportunity to travel to Slovenia with the college to work in a business environment for two weeks. This trip really broadened my understanding of business while travelling and taking in a new culture which is something I would love to do in the future. The work experience trip made me realise that I wanted to pursue my studies in Business.
I cannot recommend Cavan Institute enough with all the experience that I gained which I now will benefit from while studying Business Studies in Dundalk Institute of Technology. A huge thank you to my tutors Michelle Marron and Maureen Lynch for being so helpful and supportive throughout the year."
