I think this is good news for the city, hopefully it will lead to an increase in students in the city and further Limerick as an academic centre.

Griffith College is delighted to announce the integration of the Mid West Business Institute (MWBI) into Griffith College from September 1st. MWBI is based in the Old Town Hall building in Rutland Street, in Limerick. As of this month, MWBI will be re-named Griffith College Limerick.

I did a course in griffith college limerick and myself and my class were so disappointed with the course and the facilities. IT WAS AN ABSOLUTE MESS EVERYTHING ABOUT THE PLACE WAS JUST... WELL CRAP AND BADLY RUN. Biggest waste of time so angry can`t believe they can portray themselves as a private college above public standards. You may as well through your money down the drain.
I've heard mixed reviews through a few people alright though.
