Having spent 5 years of my educational journey at TUS with fantastic course content and connection with the career industry. The courses also provided the students with hands on industry experience which involves working with the Midlands SMEs in the incubator located next to the college. I can say Athlone is both my second family and home away from home. The care and guidance I received, from the lecturers and every member of staff, was beyond world class. I am thankful for every moment I have spent in TUS.

Before I came to TUS, I was afraid that nobody would help me if I experienced any problems. I did not need to worry as everyone in TUS will help you if you have any doubts especially the TUS International Office staff. TUS has world class sports facilities. TUS also provides opportunities to play GAA football which is an Irish traditional sport and it is a new experience for me to try this unique sport. Athlone is the perfect place for me and don’t forget to choose TUS!
