I really enjoyed my time in the Cork College of Commerce. The teachers were very helpful and supportive. Even for someone with a disability, the Disability Support was outstanding. I would strongly recommend current or future Leaving Certificate students to apply for this course.

My experience at the college of commerce was really great. As someone who was geared for course progression I couldn’t have been in better hands. We were constantly updated with important dates and deadlines and there were tons of chances to attend informative talks and one-to-ones with level 8 college representatives. What also needs to be mentioned is the support from the faculty. At the beginning of the course we were all told that the teachers will do everything they can to help us achieve the best result we could and then that’s exactly what they did.

I would strongly recommend anyone who’s thinking of doing a level 5 course to look into the Cork College of Commerce. It’s a college that goes above and beyond to ensure that you get the best out of your course and I’ll always look back fondly on my time spent there

The Certificate in Business provided a wide range of subjects and the teachers gave great support during the year. The year provided me with time to mature and gain new perspectives so that now I’m really looking forward to starting in CIT.

Linards Matvejevs: I think CCOC was a great experience. It helped me understand what college would be like. The teachers also helped a great deal with any help I required. It helped me reach higher education. Without the CCOC I wouldn’t be where I am today.

Ali Raza: At CCOC the lectures were well rounded. Classes were small and the lecturers very accessible which suited my learning style
