I was nervous coming back to education after so long. I felt Carlow College was very open to mature students. I felt welcome from the moment I went to the open day. There was a friendly and inclusive atmosphere from day one.
I enjoy the variety of subjects. Psychology has always been an interest of mine and I have enjoyed the different psychology modules. Discussions and group work are a part of every module and it has been invaluable to hear other peoples opinions and thoughts on the topics we study.
During first year, I attended some classes with Caroline Flinter from the Academic Resource Office, which helped me with computer skills. Caroline was very supportive and helpful, and answered any questions we had.
I enjoy the challenge from Carlow College. Lecturers are encouraging and available for guidance and advice. I feel inspired by the personal stories shared with us during lectures, and I feel excited to contribute to society when I leave.
I would recommend Carlow College because of its inclusive policy, the variety of subjects, the friendliness and openness of staff, and the size of the college makes it feel like you are part of a community.
