“The standard of teaching in Kimmage is extremely high and the enthusiasm of the lecturers for their subject is infectious. The participative nature of the class work also allows for deep relationships to develop among students.
My knowledge of political and economic theory has helped my work as a journalist, while teamwork and conflict resolution has been a huge resource in my work as a manager of people. My degree in Kimmage has also been the basis of future study in Trinity college where I am currently completing an M.Phil in International Peace Studies. The dissertation for this masters was also arranged and hosted by Kimmage DSC and Kimmage East Africa Programme in Tanzania”.
