Donegal students attending Derry’s North West Regional College (NWRC) are set to benefit from new funding.

NWRC has secured almost €900,000 of Erasmus+ funding, which will enable staff and students to visit a number of European countries.

Over the next two years, NWRC students such as Aaron Smith from Inch (pictured) will undertake study or complete traineeships across all areas of the curriculum.

The aim of the Erasmus Project is to see students return to NWRC with new skills and confidence, which will help towards their qualification.

Staff will also take part in mobility transfers visiting other educational facilities, schools and industry to share best practice and develop networks and partnerships

Speaking to the Inish Times, Bronagh Fikri, the North West Regional College’s European and International Projects Officer said: “We are delighted to have been successful in Erasmus+ and are looking ahead to starting the project."
