I chose to study Pre-Uni Teaching as there is a lot of variety of modules and different career paths to decide from. I loved the choice of modules such as Law, Psychology, English, Journalism etc. The teachers were a huge help, they were there every step of the way. The colege facilities were great and it was easy to get to the college on public transport if you are travelling from outside Dundalk. This course has given me the opportunity to progress on to university and continue studying something I enjoy.
