Small Class Size
For most courses class size is generally between 20 and 30 students.
There are no fees for tuition, however there are course charges. In line with provision in the third level sector these charges exist to cover the costs of the following items: books, some equipment, uniforms/clothing, student services, student union, examination fees and registration charges by professional bodies. Course charges can be found at the end of individual course pages on the website.
There are no points required for entry to any of our courses. In general applicants are required to have their Leaving Certificate and to be successful in an interview. For some courses it may be necessary to present a portfolio of work. For specific course requirements see individual course pages.
