What are your interests?



The Social person's interests focus on interacting with the people in their environment. In all cases, the Social person enjoys the personal contact with other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

When I received a poor Leaving Certificate result I did not know what route I would take in order to enter third level education. There was nothing I wanted to achieve more than attending university.

Upon researching online multiple QQI level 5 courses I decided to choose Digital Marketing at Ballsbridge College. This decision was based on their university paths. Before applying here, I read in the prospectus that Ballsbridge College had previous history of students continuing their education to DCU in the course I desired (Marketing, Innovation and Technology).

I registered very close to the start of the semester, but the staff were more than happy to help me complete my application and to inform me on everything the college had to offer. The subjects that were taught as part of course were all very enjoyable and insightful.

There were continuous assessment assignments in every module which was great as it helped me to continually focus during the year rather than having an exam worth 100% at the end of the year. The teachers at Ballsbridge College are professional and approachable.

They are all very knowledgeable on the topic that they teach and are student-focused. They help to prepare students for exams using past exam questions, they also allocate a lot of time focusing on exams which I very much appreciated. Having achieved great results, I applied to DCU through the CAO.

I was offered my first choice, Marketing, Innovation and Technology at DCU. I would like to attribute my achievement to Ballsbridge College. Ballsbridge College was a vital stepping stone for me to achieve my goal to attend university.
