“Despite more than 5 years passing since my time at Ballsbridge College of Further Education, I still consider that experience to be the most influential in my career. I have since gone on to obtain my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Studies from DCU, and have been offered a job on the highly competitive graduate programme at IDA Ireland – something which wouldn’t have occurred without the support of Ballsbridge College of FE.”
