I had looked into a few other colleges who offer Business with a language, but their modules were not as attractive as those offered at TU Dublin and there was no Erasmus option. Languages are something that I've always been interested in, so the language option and the Erasmus year on the course was what appealed to me. The course has a huge variety of modules, ranging from Economics, Marketing, Business Information Systems and Financial Accounting to a choice of languages. Students also have the opportunity to gain a lot of hands-on skills
