Higher Certificate in Arts in Legal Studies Graduate, Sinead Hogan tells us how the wide range of subjects have given her many career opportunities
"Having just completed the Higher Certificate in Legal Studies, my eyes have been opened to how fascinating and challenging the law can be. I have learned that law is a controversial and dynamic field of study as it is steeped in current affairs and affects all areas of our everyday lives.
The course offers a diverse range of subjects that have given me many career options. Not only has the course given me a broad knowledge of the law but I have also acquired office and communication skills that will be beneficial in any career.
I now have the opportunity to pursue both an ordinary degree in legal studies and an honours degree in law with business which should give me good employment opportunities abroad.
The excellent facilities, supportive teaching staff and extensive choice of clubs & societies have made my experience at WIT fulfilling and worthwhile."
