Graduation Ceremony in Clontarf Castle May 2014

Congratulations to the Killester College Class of 2014.  40% of graduates progressed to further study and 30% secured employment within 6 months of completing their course.  Well done one and all!

We are delighted to be part of our students’ success. Congratulations to Ruth Little who successfully secured a place in the Royal College of Surgeons, Audrey Doyle who is attending NCI, Chris Devitt who is in UCD, Casey O’Callaghan and Yvonne Spain who are studying in Trinity College. Also Denise Kelly and Philip Kennedy who attend NCAD .  These are just some of our success stories.  A special congrats to Liz Turner and classmates who are the first cohort going to St. Nicholas to complete a Montessori degree. Have a look at our Graduation Photos 2014!

From 2015, UCD will accept the Animal Science Award to gain entry to DN200 General Science. This is routing into Zoology. From here, students can specialise in this area and so access further studies eg Postgraduate studies in Animal Behaviour etc. This is an exciting development and widens FETAC progression options. Of course Vet Nursing will continue as a linked degree.

Please see Animal Science Level 5 course page on this site for progression possibilities.
