The Level 5 Business and Finance course was the perfect choice for me. The course modules are extremely appropriate to so many areas of business and the teaching staff have always been very helpful and supportive. I am now really enjoying my NCI Level 8 Degree course in Business and planning on doing a H. Dip in Further Education

Looking back on my time in Rathmines College it was a year which changed my life. I was so lucky to be successful in getting the Central Bank of Ireland Bridging the Gap Programme. Today, I am working in the Central Bank as well as studying for a BA in Business in Griffith College.
