      • Testimony
        1996-2005, PhD; BA

        Understated prestige and accomplishmentsYI have worked for and with elite universities in three nations and I am always cheered by how well my alma mater compares. Certainly a significant achievement considering the dearth of funding and regard for higher education in Ireland.

      • Testimony
        2014-2016, MBS in Co-operative and Social Enterprise

        Great post-gradual courses in progressive fieldsYA distance learning course at UCC allows me work and study at the same time. The subjects in my course are thought-provoking, expanding my previous economic and business studies. There is a great potential to apply the knowledge from the course in practice.
