What Our Students Say
“Being a Beauty Therapy student in Portlaoise Institute was an amazing experience. The teachers on the course that made the difference with their knowledge, skills and patience.
Only a few months after finishing the course, I have my own beauty salon. This course changed my life for the better and I would highly recommend it to everyone that wants a career in beauty”
Certificate in Computer Science
“As a 31 year old father of two who was going through a career change, my course choice was Applied Social Studies and this has been a hugely informative and interesting choice for me. The course gave a great insight to who we are as people and what exactly makes us tick!
Now I am sure I made the right choice and fully expect my qualification to open up a branch of opportunities in either employment or further education.”
