Sarah Grace, BSc in Retail Management graduate tells us how the support networks in WIT helped her to complete her degree at WIT
"I really love the lecturers. The relationship with the lecturers is brilliant. I have their mobile phone numbers and can call them or they text us. There’s a student on every single committee in the college.
As a single mother, I expected a difficult challenge to succeed academically. However my experience of the support networks in place at the WIT School of Business, has given me the confidence to plan further educational development.
I am considering a postgraduate course or an Hdip qualification after I graduate. Combined with my work placement experience, I feel that I can succeed at whatever career path I finally decide on.
The friendly, welcoming nature of the staff and fellow students is a major contributing factor to my success story. I feel the extra attention given to each and every student goes over and above not just my own expectations but also exceeds the range of possibilities on offer from other national universities where larger class sizes make such a personable touch impossible."
