I started in Rathmines College doing the QQI Level 5 MedicaI Studies not really knowing what to expect. I loved it! So much so I cam back and completed the QQI Level 6 in Advanced Business and Legal. The tutors and staff are all so helpful and as a student of the college you will be guaranteed every element of support.
