Student Welfare

‌Starting college is a very exciting time but can also be very stressful and it may take time to adjust to a new stage in your lives. Here in Shannon we encourage all our students to take responsibility for their mental and physical wellbeing and actively support student’s endeavors in this regard through our student welfare service.

There are so many supports available in the college itself, with lecturers and staff always there to help you settle in with ease. The students all live in Bunratty Village together and the mix of Irish and International students is such a great way to make new friends. It was my first time coming to Ireland and since the very first day I arrived, I knew I would enjoy my time here. “Such great Craic”

Shannon allowed me to be my true self. As someone with learning difficulties, I never thought I could achieve what I have achieved today. The tremendous number of services and support along with a very open approach to learning has pushed me to achieve my best. Shannon embraces every student and their uniqueness, bringing out the best in all of us
