Business Studies Year 1

Dundalk Institute Of Technology, Business Studies Level 8 (Hons)

Natasha is from Ballinagh, Cavan. She attended Breifne College, Cavan. Natasha is currently studying Business Studies (Level 8) in Dundalk Institute of Technology. Natasha tells us how studying at Cavan Institute helped her on her educational journey. "I first decided to go to Cavan Institute as I was young leaving secondary school (17) and still had no idea what course I wanted to study. I decided on business studies as it was something I had not done before at all and would be completely different to any subjects I had taken in school.

When I was studying at Cavan institute, I gained a lot of skills that have stood to me today. These skills have been very beneficial to me studying on the Bachelor (Hons) of Business degree in DkIT. These skills included being able to stick to deadlines, completing continuous assessments, being able to use different computer software packages such as Excel and Sage. Being able to reference my work was also a great advantage to my current course. I completed work experience while studying at Cavan Institute. This helped me gain a lot more confidence working with the public and with other people. The tutors at Cavan Institute gave great support and guidance and really helped every student in any way they could.
I gained my full distinction award in QQI L5 Business and used this to apply to DKIT through the CAO Higher Education Links Scheme.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Cavan institute I made great friends and I would really recommend completing a PLC course before attending college not only are the skills you learn great but it’ll help students decide whether or not the course they want to do is really for them.
