The hours really suited alongside family life. The tutors are in tune with your needs returning to college as a mature student. The tutors take you under their wing and support and encourage you so that you can achieve anything if you are willing to put in the work. I found it was a very safe place. I feel I have grown in confidence in setting goals and achieving them.The courses Greenhills College run will open doors and possibilities you may have doubted yourself doing once before i.e. a University degree. I worked hard to receive a full house of Distinctions. This will open doors for me to gain employment in the childcare sector and further down the road to go to Tallaght Technological University to study Child Psychology.Emma Kilgannon (Class of 2021).
