Testimonial

I decided to attend BFEI and study Business Studies as I wasn’t sure what area in Business I would like to study. I have now got an idea of the area I would like to pursue.  I have enjoyed my time and have learned so much over the two years.  I hope to attend the National College of Ireland next year and study marketing. I would thoroughly recommend taking the Post Leaving Certificate route if you are not sure about the area you want to study and would definitely recommend BFEI.
