Coming to CSN has been the less expensive option to further progress to college. I chose business at CSN because of the great facilities, free parking, gym access. I felt very welcome from the first interview day and felt comfortable here from day one.
CSN caters for all school leavers & mature students. I felt very accommodated & supported – I could also have a part time job also.
Mature Student services offer a fantastic transition back to college if you are struggling, there is help. 1-to-1 teaching outside of timetabled classes. Excellent teacher contact with a good structure in place. Personally I found the teachers here are top class. All of this makes studying easier. Next year I plan to do BIS UCC, -this is my 1st choice and I have been called for interview. I got excellent advice and help with career guidance which really helped with me my application form and the statement of interest.
