Testimonials

I think by far they have the best lecturers, very exam focused.

Michelle Cleary

I enrolled in city colleges in January 2022 for the SBL ACCA exam for the March 2022 sitting. From the very first class to right up until the exam Shaun was fantastic. His classes were so enjoyable, the way he approached the course just made it so understanding. Shaun definitely is one of the best lectures I have ever had, he was always there to help and answer any questions. If your thinking of doing any future exams I would recommend doing them with city colleges and especially for SBL I would recommend Shaun because him and the whole team is amazing and the support from everyone is top class. Without Shaun I would not have been able to achieve my 64% mark in SBL..

Martin Ward

I would have no hesitation in recommending Martin Corboy for P5. He is very approachable. The class was very exam focused paying attention to exam technique which I believe was the difference in me passing this paper.

Lisa Kirrane

I would definitely recommend City Colleges for ACCA. The exam technique provided allowed me to approach the exam answers effectively and efficiently.

Kamila Wawrzyniak Conboy

I was delighted with the classroom and online tuition from City Colleges.  The course and lecturer, Mel Kilkenny, helped me enormously in passing the June 2018 ACCA F9 exam.

Jackie Cuthbert

Great lecturers, great facilities and helpful staff.

Emma Coffey

I started exam preparation with City Colleges in December 21 and have found all of the lecturers to be highly knowledgeable and exam focused.

Shaun has a great passion for teaching and passing his knowledge on to students. His lectures were interesting and very exam focused, easily bringing subjects back to exam answers. Shaun has broken the course down to exactly what is required for students to pass without sacrificing the quality required in the exam to score highly. 

I would highly recommend Shaun and City Colleges for any students undertaking ACCA qualifications.

Dean Murphy, AA

I have now passed my final exam. I could not recommend the services provided by City Colleges highly enough as well as the special consideration that was put into helping me pass my exams.  The Colleges has definitely gone above and beyond what was expected of a learning provider and it is greatly appreciated. Thank you to Owen and everyone at City Colleges.

Damien McCarthy

Shaun is the best lecturer I’ve had so far! Really enjoyed his lectures, he made it interesting, relevant and fun! Technical and confusing questions can be answered so much more easily with the structure learned in class.

Catherine Boughton

I find online lectures extremely useful if I am unable to attend class because of work and also as a study aid.

Carol Byrne

Shaun Browne’s course and exam technique are absolutely second to none. He makes the P7 course, material and questions so easy to understand and a complete joy to be a part of. There’s never a moment that goes by in one of Shaun’s lectures were you aren’t completely engaged and enraptured by his delivery of the P7 content. Highly recommend any student to take up Shaun’s courses as you will be on the right track to a pass.

Barry O’Reilly

I completed two ACCA courses with City Colleges during 2021 and have already enrolled for my third course (SBR) in 2022.

I was first attracted to the college by the competitive price, which I found cheaper than any of the other ACCA providers in Ireland offering a similar standard of tuition. However the price has not been the only advantage I have experienced as a student here. The quality of the ACCA lecturers is outstanding.

In both courses I completed, the lecturers had a rare talent of making the studying experience both enjoyable and productive. Their resources and extra study notes provided were extremely useful and I have found in both course that the lecturers really do go that extra mile to help the students on their journey.

For these reasons, I would have no problem recommending City Colleges for any of their ACCA courses
