Mark Sampson |   Student Ambassador

I chose to come to Shannon College of Hotel Management due to its unrivaled reputation in the business and hospitality industry, but also for the intimate and personal third level experience in comparison to any other university in Ireland

Katie McDermott |   Student Ambassador

My name is Katie McDermott, and I am a third-year student ambassador in Shannon College. I chose Shannon as I loved the idea of a small close-knit college and that is exactly what I got! Everyone in Shannon is so nice and the students and lecturers are super helpful if you need anything. No one is left to fall between the cracks in Shannon if you need help you get it. My favourite things about Shannon have been the societies, meeting new people, work experience and the travel opportunities. If you do decide to choose Shannon, get as involved as you can because time flies! Shannon opens so many doors and I am excited to see where it takes me, no matter where you go, you're never too far away from a Shannon graduate
