    MBC supports students in bridging the gap between their Leaving Certificate and third level.  Further education should be seen as a place of transition, where students can take time and have the opportunity to mature both academically and personally, allowing them to make better future decisions and preparing them for the world of third level or employment.  Students wishing to upskill or who wish to return to education as a mature student will also benefit greatly by the qualifications and experience offered to them through further education.

    Work placements and field trips are an integral part of courses, providing students with an invaluable chance to gain practical experience.  Moate Business College is also involved in the EU Erasmus + programme which enables students to carry out their work placement in other European countries.  The College provides a student-focused career advice service, supporting students in their career planning for the future, and provides workshops, career talks and guest speakers from industry and Universities.
