What brought you down to Waterford to do the course? 

I was already living in Waterford but I had a choice to go to Cork or Waterford and I chose Waterford because I had already met some of the lecturers at the open day and I really liked who I met. 

Did you do anything before this course? 

Yeah I was a teacher before I came here in the school I did my Leaving Cert in. I was also living in Asia in Bangkok. 

Are you working now that you’re finished the course? 

No I’m actually continuing on and doing the level 8 part of this course here in Waterford. 

Is there any stand out experiences from your time here in Waterford? 

Well I used to work for AOL when I came down in 2003 I really enjoyed that so I’ve always really liked Waterford, I kind of look at it more of a home than Wexford. Ever since I came to WIT I’ve had a lot of great memories between all the people that I’ve met here and the experience I’ve got from the lecturers their guidance is really good which helped a lot. 

Do you have any advice for people considering doing the course? 

You’d want to have a mathematical and scientific mind before you take the course.
