I really enjoyed this course, and Philip has the ability to make the content more accessible and digestible!

Sarah Plunkett

Mark is very thorough, explains very well, enthusiastic and deeply knowledgeable about Company law, excellent communications, passionate and motivating.

Ruth McGrath

I studied all FE1s with the help of the lecturers at City Colleges and really enjoyed my studies. The lecturers were outstanding and helped in every way they could. I was so shocked and pleased with my results. I can now move on to the next chapter in my life and I am really looking forward to it. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone doing the FE1s. This course really prepares you and helps you to find the best approach that will be of a benefit to you in the exams.

Rose Keating

I would like to say that I was at the first lecture for Equity on Tuesday and finally feel as if I am capable of sitting and passing these exams. Even after two hours, I knew my money was well spent!

Rachel Carroll

I never had a more approachable and knowledgeable lecturer. I hated Equity & Trusts until June this year.

Pavel Abramov

Without City Colleges and your fantastic teaching staff I would not have made it through my FE1s; especially taking them all at once.

Patrick Noctor

Just a quick thank you to all at City Colleges. I passed the last remaining FE-1 exams at the March sitting. Success this time round was due in no small part to Brendan, Ciarán and all the staff at City Colleges. I will recommend the preparation course to those who wish to undertake the exams in future.

Lorraine Hearne

I have dealt with Pamela and Philip in another institution where I found their undeniably student-focused approach both genuine and supportive. In approaching a course and examinations as demanding as the FE1’s, it is very reassuring to know that your success is as important to them, and the lecturers whom they retain, as it is to you.

L Dempsey

My experience with City Colleges was overwhelmingly positive. The lecturers all excel at imparting knowledge in a presentable way and the materials are clear but also concise. Feedback is constructive and delivered as soon as possible. I would have no problem recommending City Colleges; they took some of the pressure off when the exams came around.

Kevin Flood

I just wanted to thank you and the entire staff at City Colleges. There is no denying the quality and dedication of each of the lecturers. I will definitely be recommending your course to others.
