Graduate Claire returned to finish her degree in 2014 having had a baby. Claire told us about her experiences as a Business student in WIT
“I initially started my college experience in UCC, it turned out it just wasn’t working out for me, so I came to Waterford and I chose this degree because it was so well known and respected.”
“I actually started my course in 2009 but I deferred it as I was pregnant with my daughter at the time, I then returned in 2014, and breezed through the degree fortunately as the classes were so well laid out and taught effectively.”
“The staff really were great, they were so accommodating and helpful throughout my time as a student at WIT. I was thrilled to graduate with my honours degree.”
