Why did you choose your course?

i choose my course because i enjoyed business studies in secondary school.

Are you happy with your choice of course?


On reflection, what made it the right or wrong choice for you?

im delighted with my decision to study business at G.M.I.T as i was also offered arts in N.U.I.G . i feel going to G.M.I.T suited me better as the campus and lectures are smaller it is easier to make friends.

How many hours of organised classes do you have per week? (labs,tutorials,lectures,etc)


Are your lectures/labs mainly based on or off the main campus?


Is your course weighted more on

End of year exams

Is there an option to study abroad on your course?


What are your favourite aspects of your course?

i love the fact that last year every module in my course 30% of the marks were continous assesment. this took a lot of the pressure off coming up to the end of year exams.

What are your least favourite aspects of your course?

the least faveourite aspect of my course is the fact it is so broad in first year and not all subjects i enjoyed. Saying that i can drop them subjects this year (second year)

Was your course what you expected?



the library in G.MI.T is spacious and in the learning to learn module first year students are thought how to use the library.

Is there a good social life on your course?


Please describe

as classes are small it is easier to get to know the class and in G.M.I.T there is often class parties organised by the class reps who are voted in by the class.
