As a mature student going back to college might be daunting, I have always wanted to study Law but I wasn’t sure if its something I could undertake and excel in given the academic and literature text the program has to offer. Though I had been to college before the last time I had sat in a classroom was 2013 and I had my doubts about going back to college. However, I decided to enrol for a Legal Administration  course with Cork College of Commerce. This was my way of testing the waters and help me detemine if  Law was something I could handle.

I must say from the interview, it was axiomatic how supportive the stuff is. They answered all the questions I had, in a professional manner. After the interview I couldn’t wait to start and when eventually  started I was impressed with the rich diversity of students, smaller classroom groups which encourage interactive learning. Within a few days I was able to build my confidence and learning was made easy with the staff going an extra mile to help, not only me but other students as well to reach their objectives.

The College organised informations sessions on career guidance, with guests speakers from a vast majority including experts in different fields to help answer any question or concerns students might have. This and other experiences prepared me for my next step which was enrolling with UCC. Cork college of Commerce boosted my confidence, provided me with a solid foundation of my Degree and the necessary skills required for one to be confident whether in progressing with their studies or diving straight into work.. I am now in UCC studying Law and Business and grateful for the knowledge and skills I attained at Cork College of Commerce. I would encourage  and advise anyone who might be in a place where I was a year ago to consider Cork College of Commerce.
