About the Courses
BITES is committed to providing a wide range of courses that will enable students to gain real skills and real qualifications. As a recognized center with ABE, City and Guilds and Pitmans, Cambridge University we are certain we can offer a suitable course at an affordable price. We guarantee our teachers’ ability, experience and qualifications and ensure that they are all dedicated to maintaining the highest levels of teaching and professional standards. All of our courses follow a recognized syllabus and are taught using varied methodology and mediums to arouse the analytical skills of the student.
Your Goal – skills for employment:
Our short courses (one year or less) provide students with the relevant practical skills to use in the workplace; whether these be simply obtaining a grasp of English or using a computer confidently. On these courses the emphasis is to reach your goals in the least time possible, so that you can quickly move onto something new. You will also be able to take examinations so that you have something to show potential employers at the end of your course.
Your Goal – Higher education:
Many of our students want to be able to study up to degree level, so that they have an internationally recognized and respected qualification. For that reason we offer degree courses in Business Administration, Business Information Systems and Travel, Tourism and Hospitality. All of these courses are approved by ABE (the Association of Business Executives). Students can stay with us for 3.5 years and receive a degree awarded by the Irish International University or, they can study with us for 2.5 years and then gain immediate entry to a wide range of UK universities to complete the final year of their degree.
Looking to the future:
At LITE we realize that in order to offer our students the best possible choice and quality of education we need to continually develop our portfolio of courses. With this in mind we will listen to the needs of our students and monitor the fields they wish to enter and expand accordingly. A regular update of new courses that are coming soon is made available to students well in advance, which means they can plan their progression and realize their goals.
