My name is Daniel Dekyssky. I come from Slovakia originally. I have been living in Ireland for the past 4 years. I came to Ireland with the aim of studying English. Then in 2015 I decided to study Business Studies in Cork College of Commerce. Thanks to the College of Commerce I got the opportunity to study Chinese and I was delighted to be chosen to take part in the Confucius Institute Shanghai Easter Camp. It was a truly memorable experience and a great opportunity to see this amazing culture. I am currently studying Commerce in UCC. I feel that at the College of Commerce I received an excellent preparation for my 3rd level studies.Daniel Dekyssky
“The college was for me a great starting point for me as it helped me to discover the qualities and skills which I hadn’t discovered before. This encouraged me to continue with my third level education to CIT. There have been so many improvements in my educational life because of what I have learnt in CCOC. I am very grateful to all of teachers of for their time, sacrifice and encouragement during my time at the college and I won’t forget that.Erick Ndambi
Returning to education after such long period of time was daunting but the teachers at college of commerce made it much more easier with their openness making the transition straight forward. I completed the level 5 and 6 certificates in business in the college, which gave me the grounding needed for the world of business. I’m currently continuing my studies in CIT, this is something I know I wouldn’t have done without the knowledge and help i received during my two years in Cork College of commerce, which included a once in a lifetime trip to China.
Many thanks to everyone who was a part of the journey over the two years. I’d highly recommend Cork College of Commerce to anyone.John McSweeney
