Review

College
Some (very few) good lecturers.
Small college environment that encourages and even protects incompetent lecturers and staff.
Many borderline absentee lecturers who are defended when student representatives speak with head of department.
Careers adviser did not know what a top up degree was and advised me that there was no way that could be possible to do a degree in a year which was funny, but also embarrassing when I asked her to google it!
Overall, incredibly disappointing. Think twice CAO applicants!!

Review

College
Very good college to attend.
Area of Study
The course gives you a comprehensive knowledge of all areas of business and builds you to think strategically and with the wider picture in mind
Accommodation
I lived at home so not applicable to me!
City Life/Social Scene
Carlow...plenty of good bars for going out and all within close proximity
Clubs and Societies
Joining a club or society is well worth it, as it provides opportunities to help out and get experience within the other areas of the college
Sports Facilities
The facilities at IT Carlow are great for social or competitive sports
Overall Comments
Very happy with my choice of course and college and I would recommend it!
