A word from some of the graduates:
“I must say that I really enjoyed my time studying in LIT/LSAD Clonmel. At times it was very difficult and there were many sleepless nights, but the journey has been an amazing one. I would highly recommend the campus to both school leavers and mature students alike. The lecturers are very supportive, helpful, friendly and highly knowledgeable. They take the time to get to know you and help you develop and grow in your personal and professional interests.
My time in Clonmel has given me the opportunity to learn fantastic new skills, space to develop some very interesting projects, and work with some very talented people. As well as working on digital media, design and technology projects, I also had the opportunity to work on extra-curricular types of projects, such as the end of year showcase, “Pen & Pixel” held in the college every year. I have made lifelong friends, valued colleagues and future goals and I am delighted that I chose to study here.” Claire Murray
“After spending the last four years studying in the Clonmel Campus of Limerick School of Art & Design, I can honestly say it was an experience that I will never forget. At times I did find it difficult and wanted to give up but with support I kept going and graduated with a degree I never thought I would receive. I would highly recommend both the campus and the course to anyone who wants to progress in the field of creative multimedia. While it is a small campus, LSAD Clonmel gives students the opportunity to work with lectures on a one-to-one basis. ” Emily Kearns
