We have a fun learning experience using Kahoot for business and we enjoyed putting presentations together for history and quizzes for history of art. The teachers were just lovely and the students are now good friends. Rathmines College was an amazing experience.

The teachers are very patient and give great notes and tips and make you feel at ease and were always there for any advice and guidance. During our classes, the teachers used a range of learning methods and this really enhanced the learning experience.
