My time in UCC was a wonderful two years. The teachers and staff were so welcoming and helpful. The classes were informative and set you up for the years ahead. I’d like to thank Cork College of Commerce for all the help and support in helping me get to UCC.

My time in college was a very positive experience. During my time here, I learned new skills that I can bring with me for the rest of my life. The teachers were very helpful and always ready to help. Because of this, I was able to learn a lot through my time here.

I decided that after being out of education for quite some time that I would go and study  A FETAC Level 5 Childcare course . I continued my studies in Cork College of Commerce studying  LEVEL 6 Psychosocial Awareness and training.    Without the support I got from the teachers I am not sure I would have stuck out the course.  Thanks to everyone at the college I was offered all five courses that I applied for through CAO. I chose to go with Social Work in UCC in the end for many different reasons.   I cannot thank the staff at Cork College of Commerce enough for their support through the whole process. The teachers are nothing short of fantastic I would encourage anyone to go there. I am loving the course in UCC although the support in College of Commerce is greatly missed I would have no hesitation in contacting the highly trained teachers that thought me last year for support along the way.
