This Professional Diploma is not on the National Framework of Qualifications as a credit-bearing course. This is not unusual for professional courses of this nature, where the need is for fresh and actionable skills (in a shorter form course) that are demonstrated immediately in the workplace.

For part-time courses we have the below payment options:

  • Full payment before the start of the course
  • 5% deposit to secure the student's place and paying the remaining balance in instalments before the start of the course
  • 50-50 payment option (students will be required to pay 50% of the fees before the start of the course, with the remaining balance due within 30 days of the course commencing)

Please note that standard terms and conditions apply, which you can review here:

A Professional Diploma is a relatively short, practical course that provides learners with up-to-date skills in a professional area. Because of their tight focus and duration, they are stand-alone qualifications and are not referenced to NFQ levels or university degree/diploma courses.

Professional Diplomas are suitable for learners wishing to advance their professional skills and career prospects, rather than their academic credentials. Professional Diplomas are generally not accepted for transfer credit onto academic courses, but are widely recognised and valued by employers.
