Testimonial

This course has a vast amount to offer its students. I found the course accessible, classes were small and thought-provoking. The teachers were really involved with the students and genuinely interested in seeing them do well. The variety of modules covered such as Entrepreneurial Studies and Digital Marketing gave students an opportunity to discover which aspects of the industry appealed to their interests and strengths. The best aspect of studying in BFEI was definitely the high quality of lectures I attended on a daily basis. I would definitely recommend BFEI whether you want to return to education, learn a new skill or use it as a first stop in third level education.
