What are your interests?



The Linguistic's interests are usually focused on ideas and information exchange. They tend to like reading a lot, and enjoy discussion about what has been said. Some will want to write about their own ideas and may follow a path towards journalism, story writing or editing. Others will develop skills in other languages, perhaps finding work as a translator or interpreter. Most Linguistic types will enjoy the opportunity to teach or instruct people in a topic they are interested in.

Event Management Graduate

Event Management Graduate

In the months leading up to the Leaving Certificate I feared I wouldn’t get the points to progress into a degree in Event Management. So, I knew I had to put a contingency plan together. With the help of my guidance counsellor, I came across Ballsbridge College and applied for the Event Management course.

The modules studied in Ballsbridge College provided me with a practical and academic way of learning the Event Industry. The skills and knowledge learned whilst studying at Ballsbridge College were key factors for me going on to work on numerous festivals such as Metropolis, Forbidden Fruit & Electric Picnic festivals.

The staff in Ballsbridge College provided me with the support and guidance throughout the year and were very supportive. In September 2017 I started in DIT and I was well prepared for the demands of an undergraduate course from studying at Ballsbridge College.

Skills learned whilst in Ballsbridge College such as report writing were a huge advantage starting in DIT and are essential in my day to day activities. I would highly recommend Ballsbridge College for anyone that is interested in the Event Industry.
