Being made redundant gave me the chance to work with animals which had always been an ambition of mine. Veterinary nursing quickly became what I wanted to do but unfortunately I had not got a leaving cert or experience in a working environment with animals so I stood little chance of gaining a place on a degree course. That was until I found the animal care course in Killester college. This 1 year course gave me everything I needed. It gave me the subjects I required to gain a place through the Fetac system but also the experience in a veterinary practice that ultimately led to me being accepted as a mature student because of the experience I had gained and the references had got from the vet and the nurses at this practice. I am now a full time student at UCD and this is definitely one of the best experiences of my life.

Congrats to past Animal Science Student-Jamie Enright who has just completed a degree in Biovet. Science in the Royal Vet. College London (2016) Jamie is now starting a graduate Programme in Vet. Medicine in London.
It’s amazing where dedication, hard work and a PLC can get you!

“Killester College was an extremely important stepping stone and has opened multiple doors for me ..”

Our Graduation Ceremony took place at Clontarf Castle this year. As a college we enjoy celebrating the achievements of all our students. A very special part of the day is the awarding of student prizes when we pay tribute to students who have excelled in particular ways throughout the year. These prizes are for academic and learning community achievements. The highest accolade that we can bestow on a student is Student of the Year Award.

Have a look at the photographs of the event here.
