My time at Rathmines College has been a great and memorable experience. It is an experience that I will never forget or regret. I studied the Advanced Certificate in Administration Level 6 course. This course has helped me learn a lot. I have learned functions on word and excel that I didn't know before, my interpersonal skills have improved greatly and the fact that I have done work experience thanks to this course, makes me feel more confident going out into the world of work. The lecturers are friendly, very helpful and easy to talk to. There are clubs that one can join and social events that take place year-round. I highly recommend doing a course at Rathmines College.

I’ve enjoyed my time here at Rathmines College. The teachers were helpful and supportive, the lessons were fun and easy to learn, and you can make friends there. I would recommend Rathmines College and doing the courses there. They are great courses to learn from like Level 6 in Administration, Liberal Arts, and secretarial administration. I would recommend going to Rathmines first before moving on to part time work and other universities. It is a great learning experience for everyone and all are welcome there.
