Read what our past students have to say about their experience with the Business courses at Abbeyleix FETC

“I worked in the Electrical industry for 34 years. For 18 of those years I was self-employed and for health reasons I had to stop working and take some time to recuperate. I have always had a keen interest in Business Management and found a course available at Abbeyleix FET. The Business Management covers 9 modules and is a very detailed course. I was very satisfied with the experience and student life at Abbeyleix. The tutors are very experienced and work hard for the students. With some great encouragement from the tutors, I applied for a place at NCI in Dublin. The proof of the quality of courses delivered at Abbeyleix really came to fruition when the lecturers of NCI scanned though the Accountancy and Statistics Modules; they awarded me exemptions in both. In fact, the lecturer commented by saying that I have covered more at Abbeyleix than will be required at NCI. This was the deciding factor for the exemptions. This has freed up my time at college allowing me to focus on the remaining modules. I have no hesitation in recommending Abbeyleix Further Education & Training Centre”.
