Student Experiences

“I’ve had a once in a life time experience studying in Kinsale, meeting so many fabulous people and learning what my true passion is!”

“After attending Kinsale Further Education College studying Childcare level 5 & 6; I can honestly say my two years there were fantastic. The help provided and understanding from all the staff there, was touching. I finished my level 6 in May 2013, and thankfully I am now studying a Level 7 in Early Years Education @ Cork Institute of Technology. QQI has given me the opportunity of fulfilling my dream in achieving a place in CIT; the knowledge I have gained and carried forward with me is invaluable.”
