Sarah Whelan |   B Comm (International)

...I chose the B Comm International with German at NUI Galway. Being in a global business world also means that having a language other than English is very important. The B Comm International has definitely helped me develop my language and business skills. Along with learning all the important business terms in German, I also improved my writing and spelling skills in German. The course coordinator was fantastic. She gave us so much help and advice. All the lecturers were always very approachable and helpful...
