BA (Hons) in Social Care Practice graduate Rachel Burns highly recommends studying at WIT
"What I have enjoyed most about my course in Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) is the friends I have made and the social aspect of college.
My course includes two semesters of work placement which helped give me an insight to my future career and prepared us for life after college.
I would really recommend the BA (Hons) in Social Care Practice course at WIT to anyone thinking of a career in social care."
