Student Testimonial:

‘Finding myself unemployed after many years in the Construction industry I decided to go back into education and study IT, a subject I had great interest in but knew very litle about. I applied to and was accepted into DIFE on their Information Technology and Computing course. Starting back in to education I was both apprehensive and nervous but soon felt at home in the intimate surroundings of DIFE. The course has a very good structure and the teaching staff and computing facilities are excellent. The course was key to me obtaining a place in a Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Computing course which I'm now a third year student. The course in DIFE was a great stepping stone for me on my journey back into education and the help and support I received from staff was immense.' - Stephen Mc Donnell (past student).
