WIT law graduate, Grace Curran speaks of her progression from the Higher Cert in Legal Studies to the BA (Hons) in Legal Studies with Business
“I started in Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) in 2011 on the Higher Certificate in Legal Studies and then progressed onto the BA Legal Studies and BA (Hons) Legal Studies with Business choosing the pure law route and graduated in October 2015.”
“The course offers a broad range of modules which are not always offered on all law courses and it opens many doors to a variety of careers. During my time in Waterford, I found all of the lecturers on the course were very approachable and were always willing to help and wanted the best for their students. The course was challenging but very enjoyable and I have gained many skills such as problem solving.”
“The college offers a great student life, and lifelong friends. I would highly recommend the course to prospective students and look back myself with fond memories of my time on the course and at WIT.”
