When I first started the course, I had no idea what to expect, however, I had a goal which was to gain and improve my skills such as my ICT skills, communication skills, interpersonal and professionalism skills as well as gain some knowledge of law as that is what I am hoping to study in university. Through the Pre-university Law course, I was able to achieve most of the goals I had set through the eight modules that were covered under the course. The course content was properly organised and comprehensive, with engaging classes, assignments, case studies and research programs that allowed me to apply the concepts that I learned in real-life settings. Our course co-ordinator and all our teachers were highly knowledgeable about the pre-university law course. Overall, taking the PLC course was a transformative experience for me. Not only has it deepened my understanding of law generally but also developed practical skills that I can confidently apply in my future studies at university as well as my career. Apart from the learning aspect, socially I was able to meet so many lovely people that have become friends for life. I am so grateful for the opportunity that I had and the experiences that I have shared with everyone during my time at O’Fiaich.
