“Achieving my Level 5 & 6 QQI qualifications in Computer Networking at Mallow College of Further Education was an invaluable experience. I built up strong studying skills for exams and time management skills for class projects – an integral part of my course. I was supported by very friendly and encouraging staff who are more than willing to help out with any issue and provide an enjoyable learning atmosphere with fellow students.
It also provided a stepping stone to further studies with progression links direct to year 2 of an Information Technology degree in CIT.”
