Sean McGovern

TUD, Tourism Management

Sean from Clones, Co Monaghan studied QQI Level 5 Pre-University Cultural and Heritage Studies at Cavan Institute and progressed to study Tourism Management in TUD.

"After completing my Leaving Cert in 2016 and not getting the results I wished for I was naturally very disappointed, confused and not left with many options having gotten no offers. After weighing up my options I discovered the Pre-University Arts in Cultural and Heritage Studies in Cavan Institute and decided to apply.

During the duration of the course, I was able to discover a great depth of history of my local area, gain an understanding of the Irish Culture and folklore, make some great friends and lastly experience life in the workplace and job interviews.

During my time in Cavan Institute, I went from being someone who felt like any chance of having a future in education was gone, to someone who is now confident enough to stand up and deliver presentations, I learned how to structure college assignments and various other skills which have stood to me.

Today I am currently in my second year in Tourism Management in Dublin Institute Of Technology (renamed this year as TUD ( Technological University Dublin)) and soon I will start my work placement.

I can't express enough how well the hard work and assistance that my tutors provided along with the course and it's modules that prepared me for my course in Dublin. I am very grateful for the stepping stone that Cavan Institute provided me and highly recommend anyone to explore their great range of courses who may be in a similar position that I was in."
