WHO BETTER TO TELL YOU  ABOUT THE COLLEGE THAN THE STUDENTS THEMSELVES:

DIGITAL MARKETNG

K Whelehan, 2018 Digital Marketing Graduate got his first choice on the CAO . . .

Before I started my course in Whitehall College I knew I wanted to pursue a career in business but didn’t know what degree was right for me. I  signed up for the digital marketing course and easy to say it was such a great decision for me.  After all the expertise, dedication and brilliance from the teachers it made me so much more interested in marketing and my future.

DIGITAL MARKETING 

In my year at Whitehall I have learnt so much not only academically it has prepared me for the upcoming years in my 3rd level education. I have made so many new friends at Whitehall. The tutors offer continuous support and advice and I would highly recommend this digital marketing course to anyone who has an interest in progressing further in the area of marketing.

EXECUTIVE ADMINISTRATION STUDENTS (APPLIED LANGUAGES DEPARTMENT)

Studying at Whitehall College gave me confidence, knowledge and necessary skills to succeed in my future plans and it made me more aware about lack of my skills and what areas I need to improve. It was an enjoyable experience for me and one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I found the content of the course very interesting and teachers’ support during this year was invaluable. I was very honoured when my class tutor asked me to be a speaker on the graduation ceremony. I would recommend Whitehall College to everybody, especially for those who wish to improve their English - MARCIN LESNIAK (15/16)

Studying at Whitehall College was a challenging but enjoyable experience. Returning to education as a mature student was a life changing decision.

I found the teachers to be very helpful, approachable and always willing to help. Their commitment, enthusiasm and dedication is remarkable and enables students like myself to achieve their dreams! - RODICA ZGARDAN

EDUCATION AND TRAINING COURSE STUDENT 2016/17

"I became a Whitehall College student in 2016 studying the QQI Level 5 Education and Training Programme. While on this programme you also get to attend two modules with Dublin City University.  For anyone who has never been to college or it has been a long time since you were in college I would 100% recommend the QQI level 5 Education and Training at Whitehall College. It prepares you for studying at level 8 and it links with Third Level Colleges in Ireland. For example, if you pass the two DCU modules and achieve the QQI 5 Major award in Education and Training (with 3 Distinctions and 3 Merits) you have the chance to go onto year 1 of the full-time BSc Degree Education & Training in DCU.  Whitehall College is an inclusive and supportive environment; I cannot say enough how amazing the teachers are. They are some of the hardest working, professional, supportive and nicest teachers. Also other staff in the college (the porters and canteen staff) are lovely too; they really make you feel welcomed. Social events are also held throughout the year for holidays like Halloween and Christmas to name a few – it is fun and you get an opportunity to socialise with students who are studying other courses.  Thank you Whitehall College!" - Maria Whelan

"Doing the access programme with Whitehall College and DCU has been hugely beneficial for me.  The course has given me a very strong foundation of knowledge and skills that I've been able to use to my advantage and easily build on this year.  Along with this, gaining familiarity with DCU, their campuses, the library, etc. before beginning the full time level 8 this year has also been a huge added bonus, allowing me to start the year with my best foot forward.  Overall, I feel that the course has fully prepared me for third level education, while still being fun and enjoyable, and I couldn't recommend it highly enough!" - IAN McCCABE

'Completing the Education and training course in Whitehall college taught me many skills and also helped boost my confidence level but most importantly it guided me in the right direction to a degree I love, and I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else. When doing my Leaving Certificate, I thought if I didn’t receive any CAO offers it was the end of the world, but the Education and Training programme at Whitehall college gave me the opportunity to progress onto third level education. The progression route from this course taught me that not receiving what you want from the leaving certificate isn’t the end of the world.' - AMY O'SHEA

EDUCATION AND TRAINING COURSE STUDENT

I am currently an undergraduate student studying the B.S.c in Education and Training in DCU.  Without doubt I would never have been able to make the transition into 3rd level without the help, support and guidance of all the teaching staff in Whitehall College.  The college provides a friendly teaching environment and my coursework though challenging was very enjoyable.  The fantastic support from all the teachers really help to build my confidence.  Enrolling in Whitehall College was a positive, enjoyable learning experience. - ELAINE COURAGE
