Having recently moved to Ireland from Hong Kong I joined the course because I wanted to be certified in my professional Business Administration area in Ireland and find employment in Office Administration.  Classrooms are spacious and comfortable.  Great course with an extremely organised coordinator and teacher, Ms. Miriam.

I had a great experience with the course, the teacher’s preparation work helped me through the assignments and exams.  Following the course, I plan to progress to Third Level education.  Being a mature student and a mother, I found it never too late to go back to study.
