I decided to study at Ballyfermot College of Further Education (BCFE) because of its excellent reputation as a college whose main goal is to ensure all students leave with the best qualifications possible. The reason I first chose the Business, Office and Administration programme was because it is a great course for building the skills and the knowledge needed to work in a business environment. It has also allowed me to learn more about myself and what I am capable of doing. After completing this one-year programme I progressed on to the Higher National Diploma Level 6 in Business (BHND). I intend on continuing to Degree level in Business in the future. The staff are experts in their field of study and are always willing to provide assistance to students who need it.
