B Comm. International Experience, Student
Testimonial’s 2011/2012
College years are relatively short with little time to differentiate yourself aside from your grades. This
opportunity makes you stand out from the crowd and looks impressive on your CV. It’s safe to say I’m a
firm advocate of the B Comm. International experience - Charles Finnamore
NUI Galway places an emphasis on helping us to gain a competitive advantage in today’s graduate
market and having been lucky enough to spend a semester studying in Hong Kong at Hong Kong University
of Science and Technology I believe I am well placed to do this – Aidan Mullan
Overall, it was a great experience and I was delighted to take part in it. The highlights would involve the
people I have met along the way, being able to gain experience in a big firm like Grant Thornton and
experiencing another university away from home - Simon Weder
During my time at the Marine Institute I gained a greater insight into the role of a communications
department of a government agency and was afforded the opportunity to learn and take on key
responsibilities for projects taking place at the time – Karol Cooke
The past year was definitely an unforgettable year for me. I learned and experienced so many different
things. I felt myself become more mature and confident. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who
is considering this programme – Zhao Zeping
