Graduates may use this course as a progression route to third level Universities and Institutes of Technology. Marino College has a direct progression link for access to all degrees programmes in the National College of Ireland. Past students have said "progression to NCI, DIT, DCU was much smoother than expected as many of the modules are tailored to help students to adapt to Higher Education.  Progression to DIT to study  business, tourism and hospitality is also a popular choice.  The range of modules and skills undertaken also means that progression into the workplace is a very popular choice.


I gained so much confidence during my year at Marino now feel ready to go to College.
