            What a great start...

            I was a student on the first year of BSc in Health and Leisure Studies at IT Tralee. Being a Health and Leisure student gave me a broad range of knowledge and skills which allowed me to work in a number of different roles in research, education, mangement, and coaching in Ireland and abroad. It provided me with a platform to continue my studies in my chosen field. The continued success of this course is evident by its student numbers and higlights the quality of its lecturing staff. I am particularly grateful to all the Health and Leisure lecturering staff and management who have remained in contact over the years and have always been there to offer advice when needed.

            Best Years of my life

            Student of 2004-2008. Got a great education, prepared me for my career and obtained a degree. Met some great people, and some lifelong friends. I moved to Perth, Australia and because of my degree, I am now a senior account manager for a nationwide recruitment firm, owed by one the biggest companies in the world Adcorp. Big thanks to Michael Crossan (Lecturer) who gave me my first real paid work experience in Fexco as a student placement, and to Spar Shop in oakpark for feeding me :)

            Great place to study

            By no means was it easy to obtain any qualification from Tralee. But with the help of lecturers and fellow students you can get there with hard work. Always found the staff there very helpful and they really do want you to succeed. Social life in Tralee is awesome and made great lifelong friends while i lived there
