“I am a past student of Morrison’s Island Campus, Applied Psychology and Social Studies. I graduated with an honours degree in Social Work and would like to thank Morrison’s Island Campus for helping me start my college journey and for being part of my career change. The foundation was truly set because of Morrison’s Island Campus. Due to the nature of my course, I found myself dipping in and out of my Morrison’s Island Campus notes as they overlapped with a number of UCC modules. Furthermore, as a young girl I was petrified of Maths and when I realised Economics was a module in UCC, I felt more prepared thanks to Jenny in Morrison’s Island Campus who taught me statistics. Morrison’s Island Campus was of great benefit to me even 4 years on and I would encourage any mature student thinking about applying for a course in Morrison’s Island Campus, to just do it. They certainly will not regret it.
I also want to extend my hand if you would like me to give a talk in Morrison’s Island Campus at some stage regarding Social Work, UCC, writing a personal statement, the transition from Morrison’s Island Campus to UCC or even the transition from full time work to college. I would like to give back something to the college. I am beginning my career as a Child Protection and Welfare Social Worker with Tusla in the next two weeks. I would like to help anyone thinking about college or university.”
