After a few false starts studying commerce, music technology and film, Cian returned to college as a mature student in 2013 to study English. Having finally found what he was looking for, Cian was successful in this field. He was awarded the title of University College Cork College Scholar in 2014 for excellence in his examinations and in 2015 his work was highly commended in the UCC School of English Undergraduate Awards. Post matriculation, Cian intends to continue his studies by enrolling in a Masters programme.
