Student Stories

David O’Driscoll - Pre-Uni Physiotherapy
"Joining Coláiste Íde was the right decision for me. I missed a place on Carlow’s Sports Rehabilitation and Athletic Therapy by 5 points. I had no ambition to become a physiotherapist or move to a different country. I found the emphasis that was put on team leadership and the holistic approach in Coláiste Íde is helpful when working with patients. One year later I am studying Physiotherapy in Queen Margaret’s University, Edinburgh. I am loving my time in Scotland."
