“As part of a project, we had to make a new product. This meant we had to promote it, test it in the lab and create it. I won the Dawn meats Food Innovation award for my product that I created. We showcased it to people, they tasted it and gave their opinion. My product was a savoury muffin with omega 3 which was the selling point. I won a voucher and a glass award and I got to go on WLR FM and speak about it! That was a highlight for me.”
“I lived in Waterford while studying, I really liked the people and the city was very nice. It really is a close knit college. For me, the final year was the stand out. It was challenging and really worthwhile. I would recommend the fourth year because it means you come out with a better degree and you will develop further as a person.”
