TESTIMONIALS

"I started this course with an interest in photography; I came out with a love of it and a desire to pursue it further. The course is great for anyone, but in particular, it forms a fantastic base for anyone wishing to do a third level degree in photography."

Photography Course graduate.

"The staff were brilliant. The equipment in the college was top of the range, with excellent software and great student/computer ratio. I couldn't have made it to my current Level 8 course without doing the Media Foundation course in Stillorgan College."
