What our students say...

Rachel ITBDublin

" I had been working in the legal profession for 17 years and had grown tired with the office environment. I always had an interest in gardening and growing my own vegetables. The course offers students a wide range of academic and practical modules. The practical learning placement is an essential component of the learning experience. The lecturers are very supportive and approachable. Pardon the pun, but it is a growing industry with plenty of career opportunities! My advice to school leavers and to more mature people is, go for it, learning feeds the mind and opens doors that you may not have even yet considered ."
