I studied online for the October Tort exam which Val Corbett taught and I’m delighted that I’ve been awarded the FE1 prizewinner for having the highest score In Ireland! I just wanted to say thanks a million for the spot on hints and tips, I will be recommending Independent College Dublin to everyone!
Caroline Stone, FE1 Student
I would just like to say a word of thanks and appreciation to the lecturers and staff at Independent Colleges for the delivery and attention to detail that I received during my year on the MA Dispute Resolution. The professionalism of lecturing staff was second to none. The lecturers at all times had the interest of the students at the forefront of their agenda. Learning how to professionally mediate and negotiate has changed my view of the work irrevocably, due in large part to the expertise of the lecturers and the faculty and college staff.
Philip Smith, MA Dispute Resolution Student
Hi Val. You are putting so much into the college and I don’t think that you realize how much it means to the students (clients ) . Most businesses and colleges could only dream of the service that you provide and its classic textbook stuff that one never experiences in the real life. Thanks for all the support past and present.

I like the modern facilities and the location. I am also very impressed with the standard of teaching and I find the lecturers to be very supportive, approachable and helpful.
Mary Blake NYB Student
The atmosphere in Independent Colleges is excellent. The lecturers all know you by name so you consider yourself to be more than just a student number on an exam script. This personal approach gives you the confidence to handle whatever challenges might come along, either in exams and assignments or, once you’ve qualified, your professional career.
Robert Block, LL.B student
I am absolutely delighted that I chose to move to Independent Colleges for my LL.B degree. The lecturers are exceptional, the student facilities are second to none, and there is a sincere commitment to providing each student with personal attention. My paid summer internship was the icing on the cake for what has been a wonderful academic experience.

At present I am in second year LL.B Law. I would like to become a solicitor eventually. I chose Independent Colleges for its friendly atmosphere, excellent & approachable lecturers & enjoy my classes immensely. If you have a problem there is always someone willing to help. The college has a great city centre location. It’s an honour to be a student here. Everyone is friendly & the college has a great college spirit.

I’d like to express my sincerest thanks to you and all the team at Independent Colleges for making this sitting such a success!
Damian Kenneally FE1 Student
I did my degree in Griffith and the first 4 FE1’s in Griffith and then switched to Independent. I would like to thank you and staff for a great experience in Independent and I have recommended it to many colleagues and friends. It has been a long road but was absolutely worth it! I am currently working in a law firm which specializes in Criminal Law and have secured an apprenticeship here. Once again, many thanks and I hope the college flourishes.
Patricia Kelehan, FE1 Student
When I started last November, I hadn’t studied law before and found the initial weeks a challenge to understand what was required in relation to the exams. If there are any students in a similar position who would like to speak to someone who has just completed the course/exams, I would be happy to have a chat with them as I found that everything does come together after a few weeks. I found the course, lectures and presentation to be excellent.
Val Corbett is one of the best lecturers I have ever come across. Very easy to understand.
Geraldine Corscadden FE1 Student

Deirdre Conneely FE1 Student
Val Corbett (Contract) – I find the question-focused approach of the lecturer excellent – we always start and end lecture looking at exam questions and Mr Corbett’s approach in this regard is the best of all the lecturers I have.
My name is Laura McCormack. I have passed all 8 of my FE1 exams and I’m writing to express my thanks for all the direction, advice and help given by independent colleges – the courses were invaluable and the feedback and all the materials were brilliant. I would like to especially thank everyone at Independent as I am almost 100% Certain you guys are the reason I passed. Anyone I speak to regarding sitting the exams will certainly be informed of the high regard I hold for the college.Thank you once again.
