    I can honestly say that the IBAT College Dublin has helped upskill myself and made me land on my dream job. Lectures didn't hesitate to go the extra mile to meet me after class to give me interview tips as I was planning on getting a Graduate Trainee job in a big corporation which was only made possible thanks to the tools and support that IBAT has provided me and I am now part of the Royal Bank of Scotland Group working in the Ulster Bank division.

    I highly recommend the IBAT College to anyone who is looking to have a fantastic college experience that can lead on to a real life dream job.

    IBAT College was a very scary and daunting step for me to take, but from day 1 I was made feel very welcome & at ease. I entered with minimal business knowledge & gained double what I knew & more. It's a great and comfortable learning environment where you not only gain knowledge, but also make new friends that you can carry with you into your new business career. The lecturers are very knowledgable in their field & always on hand to help you if you needed anything. I would recommend IBAT College to anyone who is looking to create a better future for themselves.
