My year in college of commerce was a year that I will not forget. It was full of ups and downs highs and lows, but a year that I will always remember. I have met new friends that helped me through the year and teachers that very very helpful
College of commerce is a great college and I would highly recommend it to any one.
This all comes down to the staff in how welcoming the make college of commerce feel. From the janitors all the way to the Principal you are well looked after and this is what makes it a great college to attend.

I decided that after being out of education for quite some time that I would go and study  A FETAC Level 5 Childcare course . I continued my studies in Cork College of Commerce studying  LEVEL 6 Psychosocial Awareness and training.    Without the support I got from the teachers I am not sure I would have stuck out the course.  Thanks to everyone at the college I was offered all five courses that I applied for through CAO. I chose to go with Social Work in UCC in the end for many different reasons.   I cannot thank the staff at Cork College of Commerce enough for their support through the whole process. The teachers are nothing short of fantastic I would encourage anyone to go there. I am loving the course in UCC although the support in College of Commerce is greatly missed I would have no hesitation in contacting the highly trained teachers that thought me last year for support along the way.
