Springboard+ - Meet Aonghus Daly

‘’I loved being a student at Dorset College on the International Business (Honours) Course. Having classes in the evenings and weekends really worked well for me as I was balancing work and sports too.

The skills and knowledge on offer were practical and useful, I put them to use straight away in my work. The lecturers were really helpful and supportive throughout the course. I especially enjoyed the group work we did on assignments as it allowed our class to get to know each other better. We learned a lot just from working with each other. I know this is a network of people that I will stay in touch with and hopefully work with in the future.

Doing this course definitely benefited my career and has greatly benefited my skills and knowledge. I believe that my opportunities have increased since I graduated from Dorset College.’’
