Student Journeys to Employability

How I got here...

Aideen (International Student)

I really enjoyed my course and when I graduated I was sponsored by a top company who paid me a great salary to complete a taught masters.


I started a degree in Computing but after three weeks I knew it wasn’t for me. Luckily I was able to change to a degree course in International Business and I really loved it. I graduated with a first class honours degree and I am now working internationally.


I had a great time studying for my honours degree in Aerospace and when I graduated, I got a fantastic offer from Aircraft Leasing equity firm and I love my job.


I didn’t like my first course so I dropped out. I completed a PLC in my local College of Further Education and I got a place on the Level 8 degree in Carlow. I loved it and this made me complete the Masters and I now have a successful career in a Law office.
