Student Testimonial:

'My time in DIFE taught me everything I could have possibly needed to know before progressing onto higher education. During my time there I acquired skills that have allowed me keep ahead of the workload now at Third level. It also helped me develop confidence in my own abilities as an independent learner. The year made me realise that I wanted to become an animator. This is the career I am now pursuing'.
