Hi, My name is Eamonn O’Sullivan, I’m 21 years of age and about to begin my 3rd year in UL.I found CBS to be a cauldron of experience, you will learn there not only on an academic level, but on a social plane too. I found that in each subject I took for the LC, I had a teacher that was both capable and kind. My favourites areas above all were English and History, both of which were taught impeccably well, on an interesting and engaging level.For me sport was not a defining experience at school, but through my friends I know that it can be if that is what you seek.
Since departing, I have spent 2 years at UL. And while those 2 years have differed greatly, I have enjoyed them both equally for different reasons. The opportunity to move out and live independently brings reality to your new status as an adult. I am studying international business and French, and at the time of writing this, I am about to embark upon two years of study and placement on the continent.
I can wholeheartedly recommend CBS to anyone that is hoping to learn and to grow. Having been through secondary school, all I can advise is that you don’t get too bogged down in any particular aspect of the experience and know that there is always a path to the destination you desire. And do not worry if you feel as though you don’t quite fit in, that only means that you’re doing something right.
