Moate Business College - Past Student Jemma Doran




I originally applied to Moate Business College to undertake a Level 5 in order to get enough points to progress to Athlone Institute of Technology for the Level 6 in Culinary Arts.

In 2015 I started the Level 5 in Tourism with Business as I had an interest in travelling and discovering new places. I found it difficult to get back into a classroom setting after being out of it for 3 years but I had great support from both my classmates and my tutors throughout the year.

In the summer of 2016 I received an overall distinction, lifelong friends and a change of heart.
As I enjoyed the course so much I decided to return to MBC in September 2016 to study the Level 6 Advanced Certificate in Tourism with Business.  I have recently secured a part time job as a receptionist from work placement, I have applied to the CAO for a range of courses related to Tourism and have also applied for the advanced entry to Athlone Institute of Technology to study Hotel & Leisure Management.

I think that Moate Business College is a great college for anyone who is trying to find themselves, as the College helped me to grow as a person, develop certain skills and find my true calling in my career path.

I hope anyone who decides to do a course in Moate Business College enjoys the experience as much as I did.
