            2017-2018, Marketing

            IT Carlow overall was an amazing experience. As an international student coming from Canada it was the perfect fit for me! The location was ideal (just outside of Dublin), and the school atmosphere was what helped me grow as a student. Teachers were always there for help and helped me grow my confidence. I was always supported as a student by the school and never felt like I was too hard away from home! Highly recommended going to IT Carlow !

            2015-2018, Social Work

            I had amazing 3 years at IT Carlow with memorable experience. This is the beginning of my journey away from home. My class was small, which was great for international student like me. My lecturers knew me well, every class was like a discussion between lecturers and students rather than just a lecture to be taught. We had a lot of guest speakers in every term and a career seminar every year, which helped us find a placement and make connections. During 3 years, I had so much support from my lecturers and staff in International Office. I had learned so much in the course and in other activities in the college. I really enjoyed my time at ITC.
