English & History

Leaving Cert


Career Origin

Kian is from Wexford town, he went to CBS Wexford, Studied English, Maths, Irish, Biology, Geography, History and Business. His favourite subjects were English and History.   He always wanted to get into secondary school teaching. Found that once he got into college, he still looking at teaching but also looking at perhaps pursuing a PhD and go on to do lecturing. 

How did you research the college?

He went to open day and looked through the prospectus, which was sent to his school, (he first found out about the college this way) Then he researched website and found the English & History course suited him perfectly. He had previously Looked at DCU but only did religion and English but found CC perfect. He enjoys the wide variety of choices for modules, not stuck with one topic. 

College Life?

It was hard starting somewhere new, with a different vibe to secondary school. He felt he needed to keep with essays. A good thing is that there is a lot more independence. The lecturers are also really helpful, you’re not spoon-fed the information but helped massively through it.  

He is commuting, driving up himself, first two years of college, he lived up here, however he found the rent was expensive as there is no on campus accommodation. 

What would you say to other prospective students?

Night life is great 😊 Enjoy every minute of college as it goes by very fast, especially now that the course is 3 years instead of 4. Kian strongly believes that the college prides itself on supporting it’s students.
