“West Cork Campus gave me the opportunity to get out, make new friends and better myself in a way I never thought I would be able to. The teachers were amazing, always ready to answer any questions and taking the time not just to teach but to get to know each student as well. While it was stressful at times there was a great sense of camaraderie, everybody was in it together and we all pushed and pulled each other with a gentle nudge from our tutors. I’ve taken away from West Cork Campus not just a new set of skills and experiences but new friends as well.”

Jonathon Louks, Administrator, Atlantic Language School of English in Schull

“After more than 20 years of being at home I discovered its never too late to learn and that’s thanks to all the help and support I got from all the staff at the West Cork Campus. I looked forward to going in every morning and I made some great friends along with getting a great qualification. Now I understand the saying ‘school days are the best days of your life’ (pity it took me 40+ years).”
