For over 10 years, I have attended short courses run by ACE at UCC. All courses met my needs in providing intellectual stimulation and meeting like-minded people. I found the courses excellent."

Mary McCarthy, Skibbereen

When I was offered the place on the course I was thrilled, it was the perfect opportunity to learn new skills and make myself more employable. I now run my own business and have so much confidence."

I found the course very do-able, even though I have a full time job & children...there was loads of time given to complete assignments and the feedback from each of them was clear and easy to follow.
