Why did you choose your course?

I chose my course as it was in my local area and i wanted to stay at home. It offered a wide range of subjects to get a full knowledge of the business environment. Also , after i graduate my full four years, i plan to do a further year to have the option to be a secondary school business teacher which would also appeal to me. I also chose this course because in my third year which is my current year , I have the opportunity to do 5 months work experience which will give me the chance to experience the business environment.

Are you happy with your choice of course?


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

I made the right choice coming to study business at I.T Sligo because i had a huge interest in business when i was at secondary school so it felt like the right course for me .

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

Continuous assessment

Is there an option to study abroad on your course?

I don't know

If you studied abroad, is there any advice you would give someone looking to study abroad?

I think for the work experience in third year , you can go abroad if you wish but its not really studying.

What are your favourite aspects of your course?

I like the fact there is a wide range of subjects. For example maths, law and computers. They all differ which keeps you interested during the day. I also find the lecturers helpful with assignments . The fact that the focus is less on the end of year exams takes some pressure off the students.

What are your least favourite aspects of your course?

I havent experienced any bad aspects of the course so far although in first year i sturuggled with the maths subject. I found the help during the summer for the repeat exams very useful and allowed me to continue on with my studies.

Was your course what you expected?


What do you wish you had known before choosing this course?

I wish i researched the subjects more. For example the maths subject, I didnt realise it was going to be as hard as it was. But with the help available , students will pass.
