Student Stories

Lauren Martin

“I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do in life before attending Inchicore College, but as a result of the courses they offer and having such a variety of modules, it was clear to me that HR is what I wanted to pursue.

The continuous attention and support students receive is like nowhere else. Each teacher will go above and beyond to give students the assistance they need and even a push when needed too. Thanks to this, I have recently completed a BA Hons Degree in Human Resource Management as a result of my course at Inchicore College and later this year, I will be starting a Postgraduate Masters in Human Resource Management.

The Eramsus+ programme gives students the opportunity to complete work experience in different countries around Europe! I was lucky enough to spend three weeks in Italy on work placement which is an experience I will never forget!

Going from school to college can be a daunting experience, but the staff and overall positive environment at Inchicore College made the transition so enjoyable and stress free. I wouldn’t be where I am today without the guidance and support of staff and the friendships made at Inchicore college.”
