I liked the teachers in Greenhills College because they always help their students and the way that they teach is perfect. The  College itself was a very good place. I spent lots of time in the computer room doing CAD and in the workshop doing practical work.  I learned very good skills. Online Teaching was something new for us, but at |Greenhills College it was a very good experience. The modules were beneficial and important in this course, especially for students who want to continue their studies in Engineering at Third Level. I really enjoyed the course and I was very happy there. I will progress to a University such as Technological University Dublin or Trinity College to study Engineering.

I decided to do a course at Greenhills as the College had been recommended to me. It was given excellent praise. What I found best about the College was the helpfulness and professionalism of the staff. I found the course beneficial; I enjoyed the learning curve it gave me. It gave me the confidence to try other courses and progress to Third Level. All the staff were very helpful, and I will miss them. I would not hesitate to recommend a course at Greenhills College. The staff are welcoming and helpful. I hope to pursue a part-time degree at TU- Dublin.
