'I always wanted to work with children and always wanted to be a teacher, it was only when I went to Dorset College that I realised that dream through the support of the wonderful teachers and staff'.
Christine currently works at the same Montessori-School where she herself was a student, working alongside her former teacher.
She choose Dorset College because it is really affordable and she could do the course part-time, which allowed her to work simultaneously. 'Studying after work could be quite difficult, but the support from the lecturers was amazing. Without their support I could not have taken on a degree with the level of work involved, she remembers. 'You can contact the lecturers any time you need them - anything they can do for you, they will'.
'There’s a great social life in Dublin and I would recommend Croke Park for the Sunday game or a nice walk...Drumcondra is an up and coming place with a lot of great cafés and restaurants'.
'The programme I did gave me confidence and nurtured some traits in me that I didn’t even know I had. Dorset College definitely made me a more competent and helpful person. The lectures and the people you will meet are just amazing!'.
