Having studied at Plunket College, I am now in my second year at DCU.  I am currently working towards gaining a double bachelors degree in Human Development and English Literature.  None of this would have been possible without the support of the teachers and friends I made while attending Plunket College.

I spent a year studying Introduction to Counselling and Psychology 2017-2018.  My time at Plunket College taught me the key skills to achieve what I wanted as well as giving me a positive learning experience.  One of the course modules inspired me to further my learning and I went on to complete a QQI Level 6 Award in Early Childhood Care and Education in another further education college.  i am now in my first year in DCU St Pat's studying Education and Training.
