          • Testimony
            1989-1994, BSc (Hons)

            AIT Commendation

            As a member of the first group of graduates to receive a B.Sc. in Toxicology in 1994, this training provided ther requisite skills and knowledge to pursue a Ph.D. alongside those graduating from our nation's best universities. Moreover, much of the training and course content continued to be useful following my transition into cancer research, immunology and toxicology both within academic and industry settings. I commend AIT for their 'forward thinking' and will always have great respect for several scientists who devised and delivered the course including Dr Paul Tomkins and several others too long to list. I am proud to say I attended AIT and I wish the Institute all the best in the future.

            My hometown ..

            I studied graphic design at AIT. It is one of the best design schools in Ireland. Most of my friends who studied design are around the world in highly skilled jobs now. Excellent school of thought.

          • Testimony
            1994-1998, CIMA Adv Dip MA

            Highly Recommend Athlone IT

            I studied in Athlone IT back in 1994 - 1997 for the accountancy qualification of Diploma in Professional Accounting which I earned exemptions with CIMA up to the last 4 exams without a re-sit so I think that speaks for itself. I would highly recommend Athlone IT because of the professionalism and very approachable behaviour of lecturers and all staff. Also the lecturers made the course very interesting and I am very happy to be associated with Athlone IT. Finally I also made life long friends there which I still keep in touch with.
