Where are they now?

Meet BIFE students who have graduated from this course...

"After finishing the Leaving Certificate and not being sure of what I wanted to do after school, I Decided to do a level 5 in Tourism & Event Management, I found the course provided me with so much knowledge and experience within the first year that I decided to stay on and do a Level 6. This course provided me with even more of an insight into the Events, Tourism & Business industry. Straight after completing my Level 6 in 2016, I progressed on to IADT where I could skip the first year and go straight into second year of the Bachelor’s Degree in Business & Entrepreneurship Management. I wouldn’t have been able to get to where I am today without the constant help and guidance I received from the tutors at Bray Institute of Further Education."  - Natasha McInerney
