“I would highly recommend Sallynoggin College of Further Education for everybody. It is an inclusive College where everyone is most welcome and where students mix well and interact with each other. I started my life as a student a month before my 60th birthday and the experience has been absolutely fantastic and has changed my life. I completed three different full-time courses in Sallynoggin which were inter-linked. It is not just a learning environment, it is a community also and I really enjoyed my time there.”
