What Programme did you study at Dorset College and why?
I have recently graduated with a Bachelor of Business (Honours) in International Business. Being an International student is natural to be interested in social, political, and economic climates not only in Ireland but around the world. I found it was the correct path to continue my studies after I graduated last December, on the Bachelor of Business Level 7 at Dorset College Dublin.
Why did you choose studying with Us?
I was searching for an educational institution where I would be able to learn not only following the books but also while creating and experiencing in practical ways how the business environment and theories are applied. A friend who was a Dorset Alumni told me about the college, and I realized it checked all the requirements I was searching for.
How was your experience studying at Dorset College Dublin?
My experience has exceeded my expectations. 3 years ago I was unsure how I would cope coming from a completely different background into Business education while conciliating with work. Now, I am positive I have taken the right path choosing Dorset
What three values do you think Dorset College offers on a professional and personal level?
The academic staff has engaged in a positive communication system where I as class representative felt comfortable when seeking support for my fellow classmates. Collective identity and critical thinking were perhaps the two most valuable stimuli we received as students. Essential to understand and promote diversity in and out the classroom, and as well as to identify different perspectives to challenging situations.
What recommendation would you have for those who are thinking about studying with Us?
I would recommend prospective students to embrace life at Dorset, obstacles may arise however with an open mind and willpower you will go a long way. Be open to experiencing a cultural “melting pot” which will prepare you for the ever changing world. The lectures will see your true potential and push you to find your own path.
How has your experience at Dorset College influenced your professional development?
My experience at Dorset has influenced me to be more proactive and daring. Coming from a Linguistics background I knew changing education/career into the Business environment would not be the easiest task. Nevertheless, at Dorset, I was able to welcome these changes and embrace the differences, setting new goals in my professional life which reflected positively in my personal life.
Dorset College is…
Growth. I have grown and overcome so many limiting beliefs in the past three years, and I am excited about what lays ahead of me. I now fully embrace my potential and know that I can much more than I believed.
